Met Éireann predict that the weather today is going to be VERY grim

We’re not liking the sound of this.

We were happy enough with the sun but it seems like the weather is going to take a turn today. While it will still be warm, it’s also going to be wet and cloudy – two things we certainly don’t want on a July afternoon.

Met Éireann said: “Cloudy and wet for much of the country this morning with outbreaks of rain quickly extending countrywide, and that rain will be heavy and persistent at times, especially in the north and west.

“The rain will turn more showery later today and some bright or sunny spells will develop later in the west. A little cooler than recent days with highs of 16 to 19 degrees and breezier too in moderate to fresh southerly winds, which will veer westerly as the rain clears.”

As for tonight, the heavy rain will clear, however we will still see scattered showers in some areas.

“The last of the rain will clear from eastern counties this evening to leave a night of clear spells and scattered showers. Most of the showers will be on northern and western coasts, with mostly dry weather elsewhere. Lowest temperatures 10 to 13 degrees in moderate westerly winds.”

Tomorrow is looking much the same with high temperatures, rain and gusty winds.

“Sunny spells and scattered showers for tomorrow Thursday, the showers most frequent in northern and western areas with some prolonged and heavy showers possible over Ulster. Highest temperatures 17 to 20 degrees in moderate to fresh and gusty westerly winds.”
