Bid farewell to warm weekend weather as cold temperatures and rain expected

The warm and humid weather that sent temperatures soaring to the mid-20s over the weekend will be replaced with cooler temperatures and outbreaks of rain from today through to mid-week.

Temperatures will drop considerably this morning as cooler, fresher air moves in, according to Met Éireann forecaster Harm Luijkx.

The highest temperatures we can expect to see today and tomorrow will be around 15C and up to 19C in south-east.

But all is not lost, as there will be sunny breaks between the showers, Mr Luijkx said.

"It's not too bad. Just cooler and fresher."

However, things will start to pick up by Wednesday, when temperatures start to climb to between 17C and 21C.

But as temperatures warm up, rain clouds will also start to move across the country, especially in Ulster.

However, they will be short-lived as conditions brighten up on Thursday.

Although there will be a risk of showers in northern areas at times, the east and south-east can expect sunny spells and daytime highs of between 19C and 20C.

It will be duller in the west and north, with outbreaks of rain.

While it's too early to say how the weekend is shaping up, "there's no sign of washout weather", he said.
