Irish Weather Forecast: Ireland to get soaked by heavy rain this week

Well, it was good while it lasted! After plenty of summer weather, Ireland is set to get a generous lashing of rain this week.

According to Irish Meteorological Service, Met Eireann, Monday will stay dry in most parts of the country before the wet weather sets in.

Temperatures will reach highs of 22 degrees Celsius in places this afternoon but the warm air will soon be dampened.

Thundery showers

Monday afternoon will see showers start in the south of the country and spread northwards over the course of the day.

Dublin and the Midlands will stay dry with highs of 21C, clear skies and sunny spells.

A light easterly breeze will keep the air fresh and the rain mainly in the south, west and northern parts.

But by Monday night showers will appear in the Capital becoming heavier throughout the night.

There will even be a risk of thunder in places while Ulster will clear up overnight.

Temperatures will remain between 11C and 13C until Tuesday morning.

The north will remain dry while the rest of Ireland will see a misty start to the week with continued outbreaks of rain becoming heavy in places.

Cooling down

Tuesday will see a drop in temperature with highs between 16C and 18C across Ireland with the warmest weather in the southeast.

Scattered showers will continue throughout the day, travelling north and becoming more persistent in the afternoon.

Southern counties and parts of the west coast will have the most chance of any dry spells.

While Ulster will continue to endure the wet weather with temperatures struggling to maintain 17C in Belfast and feeling a lot cooler in rural parts.

Rain will continue throughout Tuesday night along the east coast but clear up elsewhere.

Conditions will dry up and clouds will pass in the west and south but temperatures are forecast to drop as low as 10C along the most southern parts of Cork towards the early hours of Wednesday.

Picking up

Wednesday looks like the weather may begin to turn as the rain clears in the east and becomes less frequent in the west with only a few scattered showers.

Light drizzle will continue in the north but temperatures will slowly recover to a more pleasant 18C in most parts of Ulster.

Highs of 20C will be reached further east with most sunny spells set for parts of Waterford and Wexford in the afternoon.

By Wednesday evening most of Ireland will be dry with isolated showers sweeping Atlantic coastal areas before gradually clearing.

Overnight will remain dry with the warmest temperatures of 13C in the north and clear skies in the Midlands.

Sunny spells

The week is forecast to end on a high with sunny spells covering Ireland on Thursday morning.

Scattered showers will remain along the northwest coast but soon clear in the afternoon.

Conditions look set to continue to improve towards the weekend with temperatures climbing as high as 22C and sunny spells breaking through any remaining cloud.

Friday is predicted to be another dry day with more sunny spells and highs of 23C in parts of the midlands and the west.

We can only hope this will set the bar for another weekend of summer.
