It might be a thunderous weekend.
Met Éireann’s latest regional forecast for Munster doesn’t exactly make for pleasant reading, with plenty of rain to come over the next four days.
Today (Thursday, September 30th) will bring scattered showers and cloudy skies, with rain moving in from the Atlantic and turning heavy at times. Tonight will be windy, with blustery showers.
This heavy rain will continue into Friday, with Met Éireann warning that there is a “chance of an isolated thunderstorm.”
Sadly, Saturday will see even longer spells of rain, although we can expect some reprieve in the form of sunshine extending from the west in the afternoon. Any sun we might get won’t hold up for very long, with the rain kicking back in by nightfall.
We’re also expecting the nights to cool somewhat, with temperatures dipping as low as five degrees on Saturday, which isn’t great news, but does at least feel a little bit more natural for autumn.
Sunday is set to be the strangest day of all, with “good sunny spells” forecasted among blustery showers and even more thunderstorms, so that sounds like a total mess.
Temperatures will gradually drop throughout the week, beginning with highs of 12 to 13 degrees before shifting downwards towards the 10-11 degree mark.
