Dry, Pleasant Weather to Return for UK and Ireland

A series of storms brought unsettled weather to much of Ireland and the United Kingdom this week; however, more tranquil weather is expected from Sunday into next week.

A storm system will bring some rain and showers to the region through Saturday, but any heavy rainfall will be limited to Friday. Although there can be some local downpours, no flooding is expected from this storm.

The greatest threat for a soaking rain will be from northern Ireland into Scotland, with just some passing showers across the rest of Ireland, Wales and England.

By Saturday, there will only be some lingering showers across Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland as high pressure builds southwest of Ireland.

This area of high pressure will dominate the weather across the region for the bulk of next week.

A weak frontal boundary crossing Ireland and northern parts of the United Kingdom from Sunday night into Monday will bring some brief showers; otherwise, dry weather will prevail.

Temperatures will be 2-4 C (3-7 F) above normal through next week, following several days of cool weather this week.
