Cork Braces for a Thunderous Farewell to Summer as Storms Roll In, Warns Met Eireann


Cork is bracing itself for a day of heavy passing showers, with the possibility of thundery downpours in some areas later this evening. Met Eireann, the national weather service, has forecasted a mix of sunshine and rain for the last official weekend of summer. Although Saturday started off breezy, the sun has been shining for the most part. However, heavy rain is expected to hit after lunchtime, with the potential for thundery conditions in the east later on. Temperatures are expected to reach a high of 16 to 19 or 20 degrees today, dropping to lows of about 10 to 13 tonight.

Moving into tonight, scattered showers will become isolated across Munster, while western areas will experience outbreaks of rain and drizzle. Tomorrow is expected to be another cloudy and wet day. Met Eireann anticipates “scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle” in the morning, along with some mist or shallow fog patches. However, the best of the sunshine is set to develop later in the day as the rain and drizzle become more patchy. Sunday’s highest temperatures are predicted to be around 16 to 18 or 19 degrees.

Looking ahead to next week, the weather is expected to be a mixed bag. Cloudy days, spells of welcome sunshine, and plenty of scattered showers are on the horizon as we transition into September.
