After a disappointing summer weather-wise thus far, conditions look set to take a brighter turn this week.
Temperatures are set to soar across Ireland this week, according to Met Éireann’s latest forecast.
The Emerald Isle looks set to enjoy sunshine temperatures reaching the mid-to-high 20s as “high pressure” hits the island.
The best conditions are forecast for the second half of the week, with rain and storms threatening on Monday.
Monday could see thunderstorms – a dull start to the week
Summer is on the way as Met Éireann forecasts temperatures to soar across Ireland this week.
Monday morning will see high temperatures and isolated showers, with showers becoming more frequent moving into the afternoon.
While temperatures will reach highs of 18 C (64.4 F) to 22 C (71.6 F), showers over the eastern half of the country could turn heavy. There will even be a chance of isolated thunderstorms in some regions.
Moving into mid-week – conditions brighten up
After lousy conditions on Monday, temperatures are set to soar across Ireland as we move into the middle of the week.
The forecast for Tuesday shows a cloudy start with scattered patches of drizzle, particularly along the west coast. It will be mostly dry throughout the rest of the country, and sunny spells will break through as the day goes on.
Temperatures will stay the same as Monday, with highs of 18 C (64.4 F) to 22 C (71.6 F).
Wednesday will be dry across most of Ireland, and most counties will enjoy sunny spells. However, counties along the Wild Atlantic Way will see cloudier conditions with rainy patches and drizzle throughout the day.
Towards the end of the week – temperatures to reach mid-to-high 20s
Temperatures are set to soar across Ireland from the end of the week, with highs on Wednesday of 20 C (68 F) to 24 (75.2 F) degrees.
Again, Thursday looks set to begin cloudy with patchy rain across much of the island. However, things will become much drier and brighter as the day goes on.
Temperatures on Thursday will reach highs of 19 C (66.2 F) to 23 C (73.4 F).
Currently, the forecast for Friday and moving into the weekend shows conditions will be mostly dry – hallelujah! However, light showers could still occur across western counties.
So, if you’re looking forward to enjoying some fun outdoor activities, next weekend could be the perfect time for it.
