It’s another mixed bag in terms of weather this week.
As we count down the days until the August bank holiday, temperatures will continue hovering around the low twenties until Friday.
According to Met Éireann, we can expect a dry, bright Monday morning with plenty of sunny spells.
It’s unlikely to last however: “During this afternoon, rain will develop in the south and will gradually spread to all areas through this evening.” says the national forecaster.
This morning will be dry in most areas with just a few showers in the west and north. This afternoon, rain will develop along the south coast and spread northwards over much of Munster and south Leinster this evening. Highest temperatures of 17 to 22 degrees. pic.twitter.com/2RYkfPbowu

“It will be heavy and possibly thundery at times especially in the south.”
Tuesday will be mostly cloudy “with outbreaks of rain in all areas”.
Things are expected to improve by Wednesday, which will be dry with some scattered showers and Thursday and Friday will be “mainly dry with bright or sunny spells”.
The outlook isn’t great for Saturday, with heavy rain forecast, so if you’re planning a bank holiday barbecue it’s probably wise to aim for Sunday instead.
