We’ve had a good run.
And while there are still some relatively warm temperatures to come in the next few days, it looks like the Indian summer is finally beginning to wane.
Met Éireann is forecasting a cool, bright day today, Wednesday, with sunny spells and a few scattered showers, the odd one heavy in the afternoon. Highest temperatures will range between 12 and 14 degrees.
“A spell of persistent and locally heavy rain will develop in the southwest towards evening, becoming widespread by the early night, accompanied by strengthening southerly winds,” says Met Eireann.
On Thursday, temperatures will drop again, hovering between 10C and 13C.
Forecasters predict it will be “quite cold and mostly cloudy, with occasional showers, merging to give longer spells of rain in places, with some heavy bursts in places.”
Strong to gale force westerly winds are also forecast on Munster and south Leinster coasts and it will be “quite windy overnight, with clear spells and scattered showers” and temperatures dropping as low as 4C.
