IRELAND IS IN for some unsettled weather this week, with rain and thundery showers on the way.

Met Éireann says today will be cool and windy with a mixture of sunny spells and passing heavy showers, some thundery.

Temperatures will peak at 13 to 15 degrees, with blustery northwesterly winds. The showers will die out this evening and the winds will ease.

It’ll be cool and dry tonight with clear spells. Lowest temperatures will range from six to nine degrees.

It will be dry in most areas tomorrow morning with sunny spells. However, rain will move in from the Atlantic into the southwest in the late morning and will extend countrywide during the afternoon and evening.

Highest temperatures will reach 15 or 16 degrees.

Thundery showers

Met Éireann says the outlook for the rest of the week will be very unsettled as Ireland lies in an Atlantic airflow. It’ll be mild and humid tomorrow night with scattered thundery showers and some fog patches.
