The last of the glorious weather may be upon us as the rest of the week is set to be damp and dreary.

Temperatures soared throughout the country today, hitting highs of 28 degrees in Shannon in Clare and Valentia Island in Kerry, while the rest of the nation basked in the mid-20s.

The mercury reached near record-breaking highs, as 29.1 degrees is the hottest temperature on record for Ireland in Spetember.

But the delightful days of balmy temperatures are about to come to an end as torrential rain is in store.

Tonight will feel “mild and muggy” with temperatures hovering at 13 to 17 degrees, and while it will be a mostly dry evening, showers will emerge in Munster before spreading towards parts of Connacht and Leinster.

Met Éireann has warned that “some of the showers will be heavy with a possibility of thundery downpours, leading to localised flooding.”

Tomorrow will continue to feel humid with highs of 19 to 24 degrees but scattered thundery showers will literally dampen our moods.

Some sunny spells will appear throughout the day, but it will become cloudier towards the evening as showers become more widespread and prolonged, with an ongoing risk of localised flooding.

Thursday will be another day of cloudy conditions and widespread showers with the potential for isolated thunderstorms with the occasional bright interval.

Some heavy downpours may bring the risk of spot flooding, the national forecaster added.

Temperatures on Thursday will remain relatively high with highs of 17 to 22 degrees before dropping slightly and falling back to average for this time of year on Friday to between 16 to 20 degrees.
