WE’RE IN FOR at least a week of unsettled weather, with no sign as of yet that it’s about to let up – but it’s not just Ireland falling foul to changeable weather again – it’s due to a meteorological event.

There’s a special reason for why it’s been so unsettled – with a mix of warm, sunny days and days like today, where it’s “down for the day”.

The UK’s Met Office explains it as an “omega block”, named based on the shape created by the weather pressures, where a high pressure system is “sandwiched” between two low pressure systems. It gets its name as the shape looks similar to the Greek letter omega.

The low pressure system is close to Ireland’s northwest coast, and will bring heavy showers to the west and northwest this weekend. On Sunday, the low pressure system will track towards Ireland, brining scattered showers with it.
