where has summer gone

We're set for another warm week but don't leave the house without a brolly

Temperatures are set to stay in the high teens all week.

AFTER A WEEK of scorching temperatures, and a day of torrential rain yesterday, we’re set for a changeable week weather-wise with high temperatures but with rain expected on most days.

Rainfall today will not be anything like the deluge that faced concert-goers at Slane yesterday, with Met Éireann forecasting dry and bright weather in most areas.

There will be sunny spells, but outbreaks of rain will develop in southern coastal areas this afternoon before spreading northward this evening. Overnight, however, this rain could turn very heavy in places.

Temperatures will range in the high teens all week, with highs of 20 degrees expected on Wednesday and Thursday.

Tomorrow will be mainly dry with outbreaks of rain on the west coast expected as the days goes on.

Met Éireann said: “Changeable and unsettled weather for the rest of the week, with some rain at times, but good dry intervals also and rainfall amounts are expected to be well below normal in some areas.”

In rather more ominous news, early indications for Friday and next weekend are that it will get a bit cooler for the bank holiday.
