It’s a mixed bag, weather-wise, this week.
After yesterday’s deluge in Cork, Met Éireann is forecasting yet more rain, thunder, and hail across Munster today, interspersed with sunny spells and scattered showers.
While temperatures will remain warm, ranging from 12 to 15 degrees in light to moderate westerly breezes, conditions are expected to worsen significantly from Wednesday evening on.
