Wet, wet, wet: Met Éireann is predicting heavy rain and a risk of flooding
We best get used to it, because the rain is here to stay.
As showers in the southwest this morning steadily become widespread by early in the afternoon, Met Éireann is forecasting another wet week in Cork.
According to the national forecaster, the rain will turn heavy for a time later today, with highest temperatures ranging between 11 and 13C and ‘occasionally strong’ easterly winds.
Tonight will be generally rather cloudy with patchy rain and it will stay mostly cloudy on Thursday with “occasional outbreaks of rain, some heavy”.
Much of the country will be dry with the north and east staying sunny for today, in the southwest outbreaks of rain will spread through Munster and the south of Connacht and the south of Leinster, turning heavy later along the south coast.

‘A heavier spell of rain will develop in the evening, bringing a risk of flooding.’ warn forecasters.
When it comes to trick or treating conditions, it’s tricky to tell if it will be dry enough to venture out tomorrow night.
Met Éireann cryptically reports: ‘There’ll be showers on Thursday night widespread across the country with drier spells at times.’
