Met Eireann has said there are “tentative signs” that summer may return from the middle of next week after a period of unsettled weather saw wind and rain pummel the country in recent days. 

The forecaster has lifted a series of warnings issued yesterday with conditions starting to settle down from today.

While it will be a cloudy today with showery outbreaks of rain, heavy at times, especially across Munster and Leinster, it will gradually brighten up from the north through the afternoon and evening.

Scattered showers will become isolated tonight and mainly confined to western and northern coasts. Long, clear spells will see temperatures dip to between 1 to 5 degrees Celsius.

It will be a dry and sunny start for much of the country tomorrow morning with scattered showers mainly affecting the west and northwest. The showers will spread across the country throughout the day, but will be interspersed with some sunny spells.

Saturday night will be generally dry at first but a band of rain will sweep in across the country during the morning, clearing into the Irish Sea into the afternoon.

“While it will brighten up, scattered heavy showers will follow, bringing the risk of spot flooding, lightning and hail,” Met Eireann said.

There will be scattered showers over Sunday night bringing another mixed day of sunny spells and scattered showers, some heavy, through Monday afternoon.

Tuesday will see more of the same before current indications are for a lot of dry weather from Wednesday onwards.

“It will be cool and unsettled into early next week, but with tentative signs of settled weather from midweek,” Met Eireann adds.
