Met Eireann’s forecast for the week ahead promises some sunshine at last


We’re afraid to get our hopes up but… we’ll take it!

Met Eireann’s forecast for the rest of this week looks to be predicting the return of sunshine for some counties.

Now we’re not expecting the blast of summer we deserve at this point, but every now and again some regions will be given a burst of heat and blue skies.

According to the Irish forecaster, Tuesday will be largely dry for most, although a few patches of light rain or drizzle will occur, mainly in Munster and south Leinster.

It’ll be mostly cloudy to begin, but sunny spells in the north will becoming more widespread for a time in the afternoon.

Towards the evening, cloud will thicken in the southwest and outbreaks of rain will develop there.

Highs of 17 to 22 degrees are expected and it will be warmest in the south, in light and variable breezes.

Wednesday will be largely cloudy with patchy rain and drizzle in the south and west tracking across the country through the morning and afternoon.

However, things will be drier and brighter for the evening.

Things are due to turn quite humid with afternoon temperatures generally reaching 19 to 23 degrees.

Thursday looks generally dry with some bright spells to start. By the afternoon, scattered outbreaks of rain will start pushing in to Munster, becoming heavier and extending to most areas later in the evening.

It’ll be another humid day with temperatures reaching 19 to 23 degrees and will be warmest in the north and west..

Friday will see a mix of sunshine and showers, most frequent during the afternoon.

Highest temperatures will generally range from 17 to 21 degrees. Mainly light to moderate southwesterly breezes, fresher in coastal areas.
