Temperatures set to soar to 25C in Cork (but it won’t last long)
You’ll be needing both sunscreen and an umbrella this week.
In classic Irish style, we’re in for at least two seasons in seven days, with Met Éireann predicting soaring temperatures and torrential downpours.
Dry and humid
It will be another dry and humid day in Cork today, with sunny spells developing later in the afternoon and highs of 20 to 24 degrees Celsius.
“Many parts will be dry tonight, however patchy mist and drizzle will occur, mainly about high ground and near the coast.” says the national forecaster.
It will be another humid night too, with temperatures of 14 to 17 degrees continuing after dark.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, will be another warm and mostly dry day. Patchy morning mist and drizzle will gradually brighten up with sunny spells developing and top temperatures of 20 to 24 degrees.
Showers will spread from up from the southeast on Tuesday evening and night, bringing the threat of a few thundery downpours.
“Meanwhile, outbreaks of rain will push in off the Atlantic to affect the southwest and west. Lowest temperatures will be around 14 to 17 degrees in mainly light to moderate southerly or southeasterly breezes.” report Met Éireann.
Wednesday will be showery and cooler than the preceding days with highs of 19 to 22 degrees, while further spells of rain look likely during the first half of the day on Thursday, with potentially heavy downpours over the western half of the country, bringing a risk of spot flooding.
Best bring a brolly then, even if you’re off to the beach.
