It’s about to get chilly.
It’s not quite your typical October weather in Cork to begin the week, even though there will be enough rain to remind you you’re still in Ireland.
Temperatures will reach almost 20 degrees on Monday and Tuesday and there will be plenty of dry spells to keep us going.
Drizzle and mist will have largely cleared by Monday afternoon, and the rest of the week will follow a similar pattern of rain followed by clear, bright spells.
We will see a wet and blustery start to tomorrow with heavy outbreaks of rain continuing, but the rain will clear to the east in the morning, followed by scattered showers and sunny spells.
Met Éireann’s regional forecast for Munster predicts that “showery outbreaks of rain will continue to move northeastwards across the country on Wednesday morning before clearing to scattered showers and sunny spells in the afternoon.”
More notably, temperatures will plunge, with highs of between 9 and 13 degrees on Wednesday. The cool weather will carry over into Thursday, with temperatures no higher than 12 degrees.
We can expect a fresh and blustery day on Thursday with a mix of sunny spells and scattered showers, most frequent along northern and northwestern coasts.
