Wear a t-shirt but bring a brolly.
That’s the best advice for the next few days in Cork, as Met Éireann predicts a week of humid temperatures, highs of up to 27C and thundery downpours.
Kicking off with today, Monday, any mist will lift this morning for a warm and humid day, but scattered showers will develop later on, with heavy and thundery falls possible and some potential for spot flooding.
Highest temperatures will range from 20 to 23 degrees with some sunny spells and a little coastal fog.
It will be “very warm or hot” on Tuesday with sunny spells and light southeasterly breezes.
Warm & humid today with a mix of cloud & sunny spells 🥵🌥️
Scattered showers in the east this morning will push westwards across the country later. Some will be heavy and possibly thundery 🌦️⛈️
Highs: 20-25°C, warmest in the northeast 🌡️📈

“Scattered heavy showers or localised thunderstorms will break out during the day, especially likely across northern parts of Munster. Top temperatures of 22 to 25 degrees, although less warm along coasts due to sea breezes.”
After a muggy night on Tuesday, when temperatures are not expected to fall below 13 to 15 degrees after dark, the mercury is expected to reach 23 to 27 degrees for most on Wednesday with good spells of hazy sunshine and the odd scattered heavy downpours or thunderstorm in the afternoon and evening.
Conditions are looking much the same heading into the second half of the week and through to the weekend.
The UV Index and pollen count will be high throughout the week too so pack the sunscreen and hayfever relief if you’re planning on being outdoors.
