Thunderstorms and heavy showers (with a bit of sun)... it's a wet week ahead

Come back, summer.

HOPEFULLY WE WON’T see any repeat of the video above during the forecasted rain and thunderstorms this week.

We’ve already had a weather warning as the tail-end of Hurricane Bertha passed over us.

And if we were under any doubt that the weather had changed, Met Éireann says that we can expect a wet week ahead.

Today, there will be showers in western and northwestern counties, which will spread to all counties in the early part of the day.

We can also expect heavy showers up to late evening, with “thunderstorms likely to break out locally”.

There may be sunny intervals, but highest temperatures will be 15 – 18 degrees, while winds will be “moderate to fresh”.

Tonight, showers will be heavy and even thundery along the Atlantic seaboard.

Tomorrow will see more showers or outbreaks of rain.

As the week goes on, we will see showers becoming more widespread on Wednesday, but some sunny intervals too.

Thursday will also have (you guessed it) sunny intervals and scattered showers, while Friday will have cloud and sunny intervals.

Well, the heat was nice while it lasted.
