Unseasonal May weather 'part and parcel of Irish climate'

According to a climatologist, the average temperature in Irish this month has been 10 degrees Celsius, which is around 3 degrees Celsius lower than most years, but it is not unprecedented because it happens "from time to time."

Emeritus Professor of Geography at Maynooth University, John Sweeney, said on RTÉ's Morning Ireland that this weather is "part and parcel of Irish climate" at any time of year.

He did, however, express regret that "we are having these unsettled situations at this time of year."

On a lighter note, he added that the present state of affairs will not last long.

The country is experiencing exceptional weather, and it has been a very wet, late spring, he explained.

It comes as Met Éireann reported that today's weather is unseasonably rainy and windy and that it will be cold and unsettled until early next week, with preliminary signs of calm weather beginning midweek.
