There's heavy rain, thunder and spot flooding on the way this week
Don’t worry too much though, there’s warmer weather forecast for the weekend.

THERE’S SOME THUNDER and spot flooding on the way this week.

But don’t worry too much, it looks like the fine weather will return in time for the weekend.

While there’ll be rain in the east and north this morning, sunshine and showers will follow from the west later on – with the showers becoming widespread this afternoon.

There’ll be some thunder later too, with more widespread heavy showers and a risk of thunder again tomorrow.

There’s also a risk of spot flooding tomorrow, according to Met Éireann. It will be cooler than of late too, with temperatures between 14 to 17 degrees.

Here’s the outlook for the following days:

Wednesday will start off mainly dry with sunny spells. However showers will develop in the east during the morning and will become heavy and more widespread in the afternoon and evening. They’ll be heaviest over the eastern half of the country. Southwest Munster should escape with just a few showers. Highest temperatures of 16 to 19 degrees with light to moderate mainly northerly breezes.

Thursday will bring a mix of sunshine and showers also. However, in general, they won’t be as widespread or as heavy. It will be a cooler day with moderate northerly breezes and highest temperatures of 13 to 18 degrees, coolest in the north and warmest in the south.

Friday will be mainly dry with good sunny spells. However, there’ll be a few showers in eastern coastal counties during the afternoon. Highest temperatures of 14 to 18 degrees with light to moderate northerly breezes.

Warmer, dry conditions are being forecast for the weekend, with some rain returning later on Sunday.
