Look out for spot flooding.
While the day has begun dry and sunny in Cork, Met Éireann is predicting wet weather for later on Monday, kicking off an unsettled week.
The national forecaster says cloud will build during the morning and showery rain will spread gradually northwards over Munster during the day.
“There will be some heavy and thundery downpours bringing a possibility of some spot flooding. Becoming windy with highest temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees in a fresh to strong and gusty southeast breeze.”

Further rain is expected overnight with lowest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees, while the soggy conditions will continue into Tuesday and Wednesday:
“Showers or longer spells of rain are expected at times on Tuesday with some heavy bursts expected.” said a forecaster.
“Sunny spells and showers on Wednesday, some of the showers will be heavy and thundery.”
On the positive side, if you’re planning a walk or a trip to town, the best of the week’s weather will be on Thursday when we can expect “good spells of warm sunshine” along with the scattered showers.
