Ireland’s heatwave may sizzle out tomorrow afternoon as heavy, thundery showers are expected to dampen down the soaring heat. 

Met Eireann has predicted that while Sunday will bring good sunny spells, a few scattered heavy or thundery showers will develop later in the afternoon.

It will still be warm, with highest temperatures 22 to 28 degrees, but the outlook for the week ahead is for a return to more average values for mid-summer.

Meanwhile, a Status Yellow high temperature warning remains in place nationwide, but will expire later today.

There will be good, sunny spells throughout the afternoon, although it might be a bit cloudier in the east with the chance of a light shower near the coast.

It will stay mostly dry elsewhere, with a few isolated heavy showers or thunderstorms developing in western Connacht this afternoon.

Highest temperatures will range between 22 and 27 degrees, and it will be warmest in the west, but slightly fresher along the east coast in a light to moderate east to north-easterly breeze.

Tonight will be dry with good clear spells and some mist and fog patches forming. Temperatures will generally not fall below 14 degrees in the west, or below 10 degrees in the east in light and variable breezes.

Sunday night will be mostly dry with good clear spells in a light to moderate north-westerly breeze, and lowest temperatures of 11 to 15 degrees.

It will be less humid on Monday and there will be a fair amount of cloud around with the best of the sunshine in the south and southeast

Showery outbreaks of rain will develop during the day, mainly in western parts and highest temperatures will range from 18 to 23 degrees, with it being warmest in the east with light to moderate northwest breezes.

Showery outbreaks of rain will become more widespread on Monday evening although the rain will clear early on Tuesday followed by fresher conditions and some scattered showers.

“The following couple of days will be showery with the risk of heavy downpours and thunder, mixed in with bright or sunny spells too,” the forecaster adds.

“Highest temperatures typically in the mid to high teens by day and falling to between 9 and 11 degrees at night. It looks like becoming a bit breezier at times by mid-week too with freshening westerly breezes.
