The look of my weather glass this morning is alarmingly good. And it’s so high that it prompted me to look at the Met Éireann forecast for the next couple of days.

In spite of the appearance of a clouded sky and the barely visible hills around us, the water levels in the glass is the picture of optimism.

I wouldn’t go knocking a meadow of hay over it but I’ve rarely seen it so high even in the course of our fine spell in April and May.

The Met Éireann Forecast is as follows:

Today: Friday will be a dry day, with cloud in many areas during the morning, especially in western coastal areas, where a few patches of mist or drizzle are possible. However, it will brighten up gradually, with warm sunny intervals developing during the day. Maximum temperatures 18 to 23 Celsius, in mostly moderate southwesterly winds, but sea breezes will develop during the afternoon and early evening.

Tonight will be dry, with clear spells, but a few mist or fog patches may develop. Mild and humid, with minimum temperatures of 10 to 14 Celsius, in light southwesterly breezes.

Tomorrow: Saturday, will be very warm, with sunshine. Maximum temperatures 20 to 24 Celsius, a little cooler in coastal areas. Winds will be light to moderate, mainly southwesterly in direction, but sea breezes will develop during the day.
