WARNINGS OVER DROUGHT conditions remain in place today – despite some showers being on the way.

An update to the yellow drought warnings for the country today said that there will be major change in soil moisture until at least tomorrow afternoon.

The warnings say:

“There will be small rainfall amounts at times over the coming days. However, there will be no significant reduction in soil moisture deficits as evapotranspiration rates will remain high.”

Overall, today’s weather will see a mix of cloud and sunny spells, with light breezes.

Met Éireann says:

“A lot of dry weather generally however scattered showers will occur too, especially later this afternoon, most frequent across Atlantic counties. Highest temperatures will range 17 to 20 degrees Celsius, mildest across the south midlands and east.”

Tonight will see scattered showers with mist and fog patches and temperatures of 9 to 13 degrees.

Tomorrow will be similar, but top temperatures will hit 22 degrees.

Into the weekend, heatwave-level temperatures will return.
