IT’S THE NEWS we’ve all been dreading: the good weather will probably come to an end this week.

Although dry sunny spells will continue in many areas, scattered showers are predicted in the northern half of the country this morning and in Munster, Connacht and the midlands later in the day, and a few may be thundery, Met Éireann says.

Highest temperatures for today are expected to range between 21 to 26 degrees, with temperatures hitting 15 to 17 degrees tonight.

Showers are also predicted in the west and south on Tuesday morning and afternoon, with some turning heavy and thundery. Highest temperatures of 19 to 24 degrees are expected.

Overall, temperatures are likely  to become gradually cooler and more unsettled throughout the week.

During the end of the week and over next weekend, widespread showers and light to moderate winds will be experienced in all areas. Daytime temperatures will range from high teens to low twenties, with nighttime temperatures between 13 to 15 degrees.
