We’ve started bringing a brolly to the beach.
But if Met Éireann’s latest forecast for Cork is anything to go by, we might actually be in for some longer sunny spells this week.
After heavy downpours in east Munster early this morning, it’ll be sunshine and scattered showers to start the week with highest temperatures of 18 to 21 degrees for Monday.
Tonight will be mainly dry with showers becoming isolated and Tuesday will bring more sunny spells and scattered showers, tapering off later in the day, with highest temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees.
Right now, the best days of the week weather-wise look like Wednesday and Thursday.
This morning, outbreaks of rain will affect East Munster and south Leinster & will be heavy at times. 🌧️
The rain will clear later in the morning. Otherwise today will be bright with sunny spells & occasional showers, some heavy. 🌤️🌦️

On Wednesday we can expect a mix of cloud and sunshine with just well-scattered showers developing and highs of up to 22C.
Thursdays will be mainly dry with sunny spells turning hazy as the day progresses:
“There is a chance of patchy rain and drizzle developing in the coastal fringes of the west and southwest. Highest temperatures ranging 19 to 23 degrees with southeast breezes increasing moderate during the afternoon.”
After that, it’s pretty soggy again. On Thursday night, rain will develop in the southwest and spread over Munster and Connacht overnight.
“On Friday morning, rain will extend northeastwards to all areas and will be heavy at times.” added the forecaster.
