It’s going to be a cloudy week.
Weather for the coming week isn’t going to be anything special, but at least we can say that today (Monday, 13th September) is the worst of it.
A status yellow weather warning will remain in place until 4pm this afternoon. The warning, which is specific to Cork and Waterford, warns that “rain will be persistent for a time today before easing off later. Heavier downpours are expected to develop with the risk of spot flooding.”
The weather is set to improve by tomorrow afternoon, after another miserable morning on Tuesday. The Met Éireann regional forecast for Munster reads: “Tuesday morning will be quite cloudy with showery rain continuing, merging into longer spells of rain at times.
“This will gradually clear through the morning and will be followed by sunny spells and scattered showers for the rest of the day, most frequent and occasionally heavy in east Munster.”
Wednesday will also see scattered showers, but is expected to be more consistently dry, with temperatures remaining between 15 and 19 degrees. Thursday will be a cloudy day with temperatures remaining consistent, but outbreaks of rain are expected in coastal areas, with most of the dryness being confined to the east.
