Why Ireland’s weather is so variable

The dominant influence on Ireland’s climate is the Atlantic Ocean. Consequently, Ireland does not suffer from the extremes of temperature experienced by many other countries at similar latitude. However, Ireland’s weather is far from predictable due to being strongly influenced by both a polar front and a range of air masses. The polar front is a zone of transition between warm, moist air (sometimes of tropical origin) moving northwards and colder, denser, drier air (usually of polar origin) which is moving southwards. The sequence of cloudy, humid weather with rain, followed by brighter, colder weather with showers is typical of the Irish climate. Ireland also experiences a range of air masses with different sources and tracks, giving us our unpredictable, variable weather.
