Faoi Rabhaidh Aimsire na hOifige Meitéareolaíochta

Tugann BBC Aimsir dhá chineál rabhaidh aimsire eisithe ag an Oifig Meitéareolaíochta: Rabhaidh agus Réamhrabhaidh.

Rabhaidh -eiseofar iad seo nuair a mheasfar go mbeidh drochaimsir ann faoi cheann 24 uair.

Réamhrabhaidh -eiseofar iad seo breis agus 24 uair roimh aimsir dhian.

Tá trí chatagóir teagmhais ann, mar atá, Dearg, Ómrach agus Buí - is é Dearg an ceann is measa.

Bíonn Rabhadh agus Réamhrabhadh den dath céanna chomh trom lena chéile ach táthar á thuar go dtiocfaidh siad ag amanna difriúla. Mar sin, is é an difear idir Rabhadh Dearg agus Réamhrabhadh Dearg ná an t-am is luaithe a thiocfadh leis tarlú.

Nuair a bhíonn rabhadh i bhfeidhm, is féidir faisnéis iomlán a fháil ag Rabhaidh Aimsire na hOifige Meitéareolaíochta

Maidir le Rabhaidh Tuilte

Eisíonn an Ghníomhaireacht Comhshaoil, Scottish Environment Protection Agency agus Natural Resources Wales na rabhaidh tuilte agus cuirtear ar aghaidh chuig Ionad Aimsire BBC iad. Ansin eisíonn muid coimre rabhadh bunaithe ar an eolas is déanaí atá ar fáil. Nuair a eisítear rabhaidh tuilte troma, aibhseofar ar chraoltaí teilifíse iad chomh maith.

Some warm spring weather!

The Easter weekend brought a good deal of dry and settled weather to the UK, with some areas enjoying beautiful spring sunshine and some pleasantly warm conditions. In fact, temperatures reached 21 Celsius across parts of Aberdeenshire on Easter Sunday, with other areas of Scotland and northern England also reaching the high teens. In direct contrast though, parts of East Anglia endured much cloudy and cooler Easter weather, with temperatures struggling to get into double figures in many locations.

So with April well underway, can we expect any change to these chiefly dry and settled conditions? In the short term, it looks like this week will be mainly fine and dry, with a good deal of sunshine at times and further warm conditions likely for many areas. As we head towards the middle of April, some subtle changes are anticipated for northern areas of the UK. Read on to find out the details...

Dé Luain 6 Aibreán—Dé Domhnaigh 12 Aibreán
High pressure to bring warm sunshine

For the majority of the week, an anti-cyclone will be positioned just over the UK, resulting in light winds and chiefly dry conditions. The exact position of this high pressure system will have a large influence on how cloudy skies will be.

On Monday morning, skies were predominantly clear across many parts, giving a patchy frost. Areas adjacent to the Irish Sea coasts saw thicker fog though, which struggled to clear some coastal areas at all. Patchy fog also affected some north-eastern coasts for much of the day.

Elsewhere though, Monday was another very pleasant day, with temperatures peaking into the high teens across many parts of the UK.

Tuesday is expected to play out in a similar fashion to Monday, with a chilly start and some fairly persistent fog for some western coasts, but plenty of warm sunshine elsewhere.

By Wednesday, the centre of high pressure system is expected to drift south-eastwards into the near-continent. This will introduce a light south-easterly breeze into the UK, which should help import drier and warmer continental air. Consequently, by Wednesday and Thursday, overnight frosts will become less likely, and any fog issues will be eradicated. We can also expect plenty of sunshine and temperatures into the high teens across eastern areas of the UK.

Through the course of Friday and into the weekend, it seems likely that Atlantic weather systems will start to edge into north-western parts of the UK, bringing a greater chance of some rain and windier conditions. High pressure should hang on over south-eastern parts of the UK though, giving a continuation of the largely fine and dry set-up.

Mainly dry in the south, but changes further north

As we head into the middle of April, it looks quite likely that Atlantic weather systems will start to move in across north-western areas of the UK. That said, south-eastern parts of the UK may well hang on to the high pressure which brought such dry and pleasant conditions in the previous period. So in effect, if you're after settled and dry weather, with some chilly nights, but some warmer days, the southeast of the UK is your best bet. But if you prefer your weather on the breezy side with some occasional spells of rain, you might be better off heading to north-western England, Northern Ireland or the west of Scotland!

Dé Luain 13 Aibreán—Dé Domhnaigh 26 Aibreán
A westerly influence to end the month

As is often the case, forecast details become a little difficult to ascertain as we move into the longer range period. However, there is reasonable consensus from forecast computer models that the latter part of April will become increasingly unsettled across all parts of the UK. Most models suggest that a westerly winds will start to steer Atlantic weather systems further south across the UK, which is likely to lead to spells of breezy, wet weather for all parts. There will still be drier, brighter interludes, although such settled spells will most likely be of shorter duration than those of earlier in the month.

An tseachtain seo chugainn

Moving into the last month of the meteorological spring, can we expect much in the way of May sunshine?

Réamhaisnéisiú míosúil
Ní furasta an aimsir a thuar níos faide ná seachtain nó mar sin chun tosaigh, fiú don réamhaisnéiseoir is mó taithí. Déantar samhaltáin uimhriúla casta a fháil ón Oifig Meitéareolaíochta agus ón Lárionad Eorpach do Réamhaisnéisí Aimsire Meánraoin (ECMWF) agus déantar iad a rith a lán uaireanta don mhí (agus don séasúr) atá le theacht. Ar an dóigh sin, cruthaítear pictiúr den dóchúlacht go rachadh cineálacha éagsúla aimsire i bhfeidhm ar an RA.
