There’s a bit of a chill in the air this morning.

The weather is turning, and while it’s not too bad yet, it looks like we’re going to be hit by some rain and possibly some thunder as the day goes on.

Met Éireann said that while the morning will start off dry, we’re going to be hit by showers this evening.

The weather forecast said: “Mostly dry with good sunshine this morning. However cloud will build up during the morning and showers in the west will become more widespread by early afternoon. Some of the showers will turn heavy and possibly thundery. Highest temperatures of 15 to 18 degrees, in light to moderate westerly breezes.”

Showers will clear out early tonight, and the sunshine will be back again tomorrow.

!Tuesday will be a largely dry day with spells of sunshine. Later in the day, cloud will thicken in the southwest followed by some rain on southwest coasts. Highest temperatures of 16 to 19 degrees in light westerly winds, later becoming fresh southerly on southwest coasts.”

There will be rain after dark but that’s grand, you’ll be in bed by then.

Wednesday will be a bit rainier, but temperatures will stay around the 15-20 degrees mark.

Thursday will be nicer again. Met Éireann says:

“Overall dry with sunny spells – just a few light showers, mainly near west and northwest coasts. Highest temperatures 14 to 18 degrees, in light northwest breezes, again best values across southern counties. Feeling quite cool after-dark.”
