Stick the barbecue back in the shed - rain is on the way this week

Rain is expected midweek.

THE SUN MAY be hidden in the clouds today but forecasters have predicted that it’s to remain dry and with decent dry spells until Wednesday – that’s when the rain’s expected.

While we’re not going to bask in the temperatures we enjoyed for the last week or so, Met Éireann said that it could reach 20 degrees in some parts of the country – most likely in the south.

The forecast reads: “It’ll be rather cloudy today but there’ll be sunny spells and it will be a largely dry day, with just isolated showers, these mainly in the northwest.

“Highest temperatures 16 to 20 degrees, warmest in the south. Light to moderate northerly winds generally but a little fresher at the coasts.”

While temperatures are expected to remain in the high teens to early twenties, the experts have warned that rain is due.

“Wednesday will start out dry and warm but increasing southerly winds will bring a change in the weather conditions. Clouds will increase along the west coast and thicken to bring rain there by afternoon.

“The strong southerly winds will continue bringing that rain eastwards during the rest of the day, but it will be Wednesday night before the rain reaches eastern areas. Temperatures on Wednesday will be between 16 and 18 degrees generally, possibly higher than that early in the day in the east.”
