Met Eireann predicts downpour in Cork and Nationwide


Ireland will see a week-long downpour as the Met Eireann weather service predicts continuous rains from Tuesday to Saturday. A small break in the rain is expected on Tuesday afternoon, but it will continue throughout the week with a band of showers expected from the west later in the day.

Thursday will be “generally dry”, but there will be a good few showers in the west, while coastal regions will be very windy. On Friday and Saturday, showers are set to continue before Sunday brings a “lot of dry weather with some sunshine too.”

The Irish forecaster hasn’t predicted beyond next week. However, according to Accuweather’s long-range outlook, the following week will likely remain dry up until Friday. Met Eireann warns of a week-long downpour and has advised people to take necessary precautions.

The weather service said: “Mostly cloudy this morning with a little patchy rain or drizzle along with hill mist. Becoming dry in many areas for the afternoon, and some sunny spells will develop.

However, patchy rain or drizzle will continue to affect some southern coasts and hills. Highest temperatures generally ranging 12 to 14 degrees in moderate to fresh southerly winds. A dry start on Tuesday night, but rain will spread from the west overnight. Clear spells and scattered showers will follow before dawn on Wednesday.

“Any lingering rain will clear quickly on Wednesday morning, leaving it bright and fresh for a time with sunny spells and a few showers. However, a further spell of rain will spread from the west during the afternoon and evening. Highest temperatures of 9 to 11 degrees in moderate to fresh southwest winds.”

While Thursday is expected to be generally dry, the west will see a few showers, and coastal regions will be windy. Friday and Saturday are expected to be similar, with continuous showers.
