Currently warm (high 70's) but humid with scattered showers.

Check the long range though

Thanks to both of you. Checked long range forecast and saw what I was afraid of. Guess I will take slacks with t-shirts for warm days, long sleeved shirts for cool days along with a rain coat, windbreaker, umbrella. What changeable weather they have!

That's what they say, if you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes.

Enjoy yourself!

Or as they say in the UK - if do don't like the weather, wait ten minutes and it will be raining harder.

Jane,
Just a note: we Irish really dislike our independent country referred to as part of the "British Isles". It may seem acceptable in some geographists' circles, but you'll get some hostile reactions if you use this term in ireland

So sorry. Should have known better. My Irish ancestors are turning over in their graves!

Thanks! I know it might seem that we are over-sensitive, but given our history it's kind of hard not to be!
Have a good trip!
Ps: the weather in southern Ireland has been good for the last few days, but it has not been a good summer. Maybe you'll bring the sunshine with you?!
