Irish Weather Forecast: Unsettled Week Ahead as Heavy Rain Replaces Sun in Ireland

After another glorious weekend of clear skies, warm breeze and sunny spells, weather experts have predicted this week will take a turn for the worse.

Monday is set to bring the last of the sunny spells before being replaced with rain throughout the afternoon.

Scattered showers will become heavier as the week progresses with Tuesday and Wednesday feeling a lot more like classic Irish summer.

Goodbye blue skies

According to Irish Meteorological Service, Met Eireann, the week will start bright and sunny with highs of 23 degrees Celsius in the Midlands.

It will be only slightly cooler in the Capital for the morning commute, reaching a balmy 22C in the city.

The rest of the country will stay dry for the most part with little cloud and an average of 20C.

By Monday afternoon scattered showers will appear along the west of Ireland with coastal areas of counties Clare and Galway getting most of the heavy rain.

Showers will spread throughout the night, reaching parts of Northern Ireland and the southwest.

Temperatures will stay in double figures with Ulster counties maintaining an average of 15C overnight.

Rural areas may feel cooler, dropping as low as 11C in some parts of Connacht.

Unsettled conditions

Tuesday will bring more rain across the Emerald Isle with little chance of dry spells throughout the day.

The southwest coastline may experience some sunny patches in the afternoon before more showers sweep in from the Atlantic.

Temperatures will remain warm at an average of 20C with a light southwesterly breeze.

The rain, however, may make conditions feel cooler as experts predict it becoming heavier throughout the day.

The heavy rain will clear in the southeast throughout Tuesday night but will continue in the rest of the country.

Wednesday is forecast to be another wet day with showers becoming heavier in parts of Connacht and travelling east.

Gusty winds will hit the Atlantic coastline making it feel chilly in some parts of the west.

The northwest will feel the coolest with lows of 18C and a southerly breeze and heavy rain portraying a more classic Irish summer.

Showers will travel east overnight bringing dryer conditions for Thursday with a chance of some sunny spells throughout the morning.

Brightening up

The east and southeast of Ireland will get the best of the weather on Thursday with highs of 20C in Dublin.

The rain will clear to reveal blue skies and sunshine throughout the day.

Showers will become more isolated elsewhere with Ulster getting most of the heavy rain in the afternoon.

Belfast will feel cooler than recent days with temperatures of 17C and persistent showers continuing into the evening.

The northwest will clear in parts and see some sunny spells in the afternoon.
