WE’RE SET FOR somewhat of a showery and unsettled week, according to the latest forecast from Met Éireann.

Today, we can expect heavy rain this afternoon extending southeastwards, which will turn into a gradual clearance before some scattered showers and sunny spells hit.

Temperatures will reach 14 – 18 degrees today. Tonight will be mostly cloudy, with some patches of mist and fog. 

Tomorrow will start with a mix of cloud and hazy sunny spells, and showers and spells of rain will become more frequent in the west through the afternoon and evening. You can even expect some heavy or thundery bursts at times, says Met Éireann. Temperatures tomorrow will be a little higher than today: 17 – 20 degrees. 

Moving into the week, tomorrow night will be cloudy over the western half of the country with some showers – the rest of the country will be drier with the chance of isolated showers. 

Wednesday will start with sunny spells but we can again expect scattered showers across the country as the afternoon comes in. Some of those showers will turn heavy and thundery, and temperatures will reach 17 – 20 degrees. Some outbreaks of rain on Wednesday night.
