Met Eireann, the national forecaster, has issued a weather warning for several counties in Ireland this week. Leinster, Munster, and Galway are expected to experience thundery downpours, resulting in a miserable washout forecast. The heavy rain could lead to spot flooding and difficult travel conditions, according to Met Eireann. The yellow weather warning will be in place from 4pm on Friday until midnight on Saturday.
Today, the weather will be mostly dry and breezy, with lovely warm spells of hazy sunshine. However, showery rain is expected to break out during the evening. Daytime temperatures will range from 19 to 21 degrees Celsius.
Tonight, it will be very mild and humid, with scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle, becoming heaviest later. The lowest temperatures will be around 14 to 16 degrees Celsius.
Tomorrow, the day will start off cloudy, but scattered outbreaks of rain will become very heavy and persistent by the evening, potentially causing localized flooding. It will also be humid, with temperatures reaching 18 or 19 degrees Celsius. The southeast wind will be brisk in some areas, later easing but allowing mist to set in.
The forecast for Dublin is not available, but the national outlook indicates that Friday night will be very wet and misty for a time, with spot flooding. However, there will be a clearance extending from the southwest. The night will be mild and humid, with the lowest temperatures ranging from 12 to 15 degrees Celsius. Light to moderate southerly breezes will prevail.
Over the weekend, there will be a mix of sunshine and scattered showers, with some heavy showers closer to the Atlantic. The eastern regions, particularly, will experience mostly dry conditions and warm temperatures in the sunshine. The highest temperatures will range from 18 to 23 degrees Celsius. Southwesterly winds will be moderate, occasionally fresh in strength.
