The city of Dublin is a great spot for shopping, culture and nightlife but rain often puts a dampener on plans with this week no exception.
According to Irish Meteorological Service, Met Eireann, Dublin weather will bring a mixture of sunny spells and showers to the capital.
Temperatures, however, are set to remain considerably high for the Emerald Isle, leaving the city feeling humid throughout the day.
A muggy start
Monday in Dublin will bring a rather muggy start to the week with highs of 18C in the city.
Showers will keep conditions wet throughout the day with a risk of some becoming heavy and even thundery in the afternoon.
Westerly winds may help coastal areas feel cooler but the centre of Dublin will feel humid and damp for the most part.
Scattered showers will clear towards the evening with temperatures dropping as low as 9C overnight.
Winds will die down and any rain will pass, leaving a rather pleasant night for any celebrations or late entertainment plans.
More rain to come
Dry conditions are forecast not to last into Tuesday with more rain predicted to sweep Dublin well into the afternoon.
Where showers are not heavy there will still be fine drizzle falling, which any Irish person will tell you can result in getting just as soaked if you stay out in it long enough.
Highs of 18C will keep Dublin weather feeling warm and uncomfortable at times, especially if caught in a downpour.
Southwesterly winds will stay light throughout the day making it rather pleasant to walk around the city in between showers.
According to Dublin weather experts, however, Tuesday appears to be more suitable for visiting indoor events and galleries rather than browsing shop windows.
Conditions are set to dry up again overnight which may be good news for people with dinner plans in the city.
But come Wednesday, a similar outlook is forecast with more showers, highs of 18C and drizzly damp air potentially scuppering plans.
The wet Dublin weather is predicted to finally lift throughout Wednesday night with temperatures dropping as low as 11C.
Conditions will continue to stay dry into Thursday morning with temperatures gradually creeping to highs of 22C in the city.
The sun will finally break through the clouds late morning, offering a perfect day to enjoy our fine capital.
Dublin has so much to offer and even more when the sun shines, so make the most of Thursday if you can.
A stroll around St. Stephen’s Green, a shopping spree down Grafton Street or a pint in Temple Bar are just some of the best ways to gear up for the weekend.
Street performers in Dublin offer some of the best talents you will see all year so be sure to stop and listen to them as you take in the sights.
And if the wet Dublin weather has dampened your city vibes, hop on the Dart to Howth for an afternoon meandering the harbour.
