You have to be quick to enjoy the sun these days.
And it’s looking like another week of frantic runs to the washing line is ahead, with Met Eireann predicting a fairly dull week of scattered showers and heavier downpours.
To kick things off, Monday will be largely cloudy in Cork with scattered outbreaks of rain or showers, most persistent early on and highest temperatures of 17 to 21 degrees:
“Some thundery downpours are possible, bringing a risk of spot flooding.” say the forecasters.
“The best of any sunny spells are expected later in the day.”

Tuesday will be fairly dull to start with a few further showers, becoming more isolated by the afternoon but it will gradually brighten up through the day with some decent sunny spells expected later and highest temperatures of 17 to 21 degrees.
Temperatures will fall to between 10 and 13 degrees after dark with further outbreaks of showery rain spreading across the country on Tuesday night.
Forecasters say we can expect it to stay “quite showery through the rest of the working week, though there will be some dry and sunny intervals as well”.
Wednesday and Thursday afternoons are likely to be the driest of the week before Friday brings potentially heavy outbreaks of rain for much of the country and slightly cooler temperatures of 16 to 19 degrees.
