The word of the day is muggy.
Met Éireann says it will be warm and humid in Cork today, with temperatures of up to 26C and thunderstorms likely in some parts later on.
This morning will be dry but cloudy at times with patches of mist and sunny spells and scattered showers will develop in the afternoon and evening.
“The heaviest showers are likely to affect north Munster, with thunderstorms and spot flooding possible.” said a forecaster.
“Highest temperatures of 22 to 26 degrees in a light to moderate south to southeast wind. Temperatures will be lower near the coast due to a sea breeze.”
It will be mostly dry early tonight, with some areas of mist and fog, but showery rain will move up from the south later in the night, turning heavy in places.
Better sleep with a window open too; temperatures won’t fall below 13 to 16 degrees after dark.
It looks like it might cool down a little by Friday, which will be quite cloudy with showery rain but not as warm as previous days, with highest temperatures of 18 to 20 degrees.
