TEMPERATURES COULD REACH as high as 24 degrees in some parts of the country midweek but Met Éireann has warned that we’re in for “very mixed weather” over the next few days.

According to forecasters,  it’ll be warm and humid on Wednesday and Thursday but the nation can expect wet conditions either side of those days.

Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy but there are chances of outbreaks of persistent and heavy rain in the morning in parts of Connacht and Ulster.

Despite the rain, there will be dry intervals in most parts during the day and rain will gradually become lighter and more intermittent in the west and north.

The forecaster said: “Very mixed weather for the rest of the week. Warm and humid on Wednesday and Thursday and mainly dry, with just isolated spots of light rain or drizzle. Turning cooler for Friday and the weekend and becoming more unsettled.

The weekend will be changeable and unsettled, with the risk of heavy rain spreading from the Atlantic later Friday and Friday night and with some rain at times over the weekend, but dry spells also.
