Hey, at least it’s warm, right?
As summer ’23 continues the soggy schlep towards September, Met Éireann says humidity and showers will be the order of the coming days.
This morning’s mist patches will soon clear to give a mostly dry and breezy day with warm spells of hazy sunshine and highs of up to 22C. However, some showery outbreaks of rain will develop on Thursday evening.
“Tonight will be very mild and humid with some scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle, heaviest later.” said a forecaster.
“Lowest temperatures of 14 to 17 degrees Celsius, in moderate, occasionally fresh southeasterly breezes.”
As the UV index is high, the experts recommend wearing hats and using an SPF of 30 for adults and 50 for kids, despite the cloud.
#UV index for today will be moderate to high under any clear skies🌤️☀️
Stay safe and be #SunSmart 🧴😎

How’s the weekend looking?
Friday will be cloudy with scattered outbreaks of rain, turning very heavy and persistent later in the afternoon and evening with localised flooding. The humidity will be hanging around for a few days too, with highest temperatures of 17 to 19 degrees Celsius.
The outlook for the weekend is mixed and unsettled; heavy rain later Friday with sunshine and showers on Saturday and Sunday.
Forecasters say we can expect “a mix of sunshine and scattered showers, some heavy closer to the Atlantic. Warm in sunshine, especially further east, where it will be mostly dry.”
Highest temperatures will range between 18 to 23C, so bring sunscreen and a brolly if you’re venturing out.
