It’s not the best news.
As Cork wakes to a wet and dull morning, Met Éireann is forecasting further downpours for the rest of the week.
It’s a cloudy day ahead with intermittent showers and maximum temperatures of 19 degrees Celsius.
Outbreaks of rain and drizzle will occur in most parts early tonight, with temperatures dropping to nine degrees in parts of Munster.
According to the national forecaster, we can expect temperatures of up to 19C and some sunny spells on Wednesday, interrupted by “a few passing showers”.
Thursday will be a blustery day with showery outbreaks of rain and there’s a risk of spot flooding on Friday, which is shaping up to be an increasingly wet day for much of the country.
Heavy rain will gradually give way to bright or sunny spells and scattered showers during Saturday and it will be cool on Sunday, with sunny spells and scattered showers.
If you’re off to Electric Picnic this weekend, the advice is to dress accordingly. Heavy rain is expected to drench Stradbally on Saturday and Sunday, while the dry periods are likely to be “cool and breezy”.
Looks like wellies and raincoats will be the festival look for 2019.
