Morning fog and thunderstorms: This week's weather is looking pretty autumnal

But (once the fog clears) we’ll have some very nice weather indeed at the weekend.

THE WEATHER FOR the last few days of August will be decidedly autumnal – with a mix of sunny spells, heavy showers, fog and even thunder.

It will be bright and fresh today, according to Met Éireann – with highs of up to 17 degrees.

After a cool night with temperatures of 7 or 8 degrees we’ll have a dry and sunny day again at first tomorrow – however showers will become widespread later, with occasional thunder.

On Thursday, we can expect occasional thunderstorms again by the afternoon – again, cloud is likely to build throughout the morning after a dry start.

Fog will linger throughout the morning on the first day of September, on Friday – but after a cool start temperatures will reach up to 17 degrees in the afternoon.

The forecast for the weekend is looking pretty nice: there’ll be good sunshine about on Saturday with highs of 19 degrees, and on Sunday temperatures could even hit 20. There may be some rain along the west coast on Sunday, however.
