The weekend was glorious.
But after last week’s heavy rainfall, flooding and dangerous fog, the people of Cork will be getting an extended break from the bad weather over the next few days.
While there is currently a status yellow weather warning in place for Cork due to fog, this is set to expire at 11am this morning (11th October), giving way to hazy sunny spells and mild conditions.
According to the latest regional forecast by Met Éireann, we’re in for a week that is mostly dry and settled. Tomorrow, for example, will be dry with a mix of cloud and sunny spells. Highest temperatures of 13 to 15 degrees in mostly light north to northwest winds.
Wednesday will see nighttime mist and fog clear in the morning, to give a mix of cloud and some bright or sunny spells. It will remain dry through the day with good sunshine developing during the afternoon. Temperatures will remain steady.
Things will deteriorate somewhat on Thursday will drizzle to be expected, although the worst of it will be confined to the northern half of the country.
Cloudy conditions will continue into Friday with rain on higher ground, but there will also be the chance of sunny spells elsewhere in the province. Still, it’s better than wading through inches of water to get to the shops.
