Overview

Leinster

Today

Mostly dry this morning, with hazy sunshine. It will be another hot day especially in the south, with temperatures generally reaching between 24 to 30 degrees, cooler though in some coastal areas where sea breezes develop. Elsewhere winds will be light and variable. While a few isolated heavy showers or thunderstorms may develop throughout the day, they will gradually increase in coverage through the late afternoon and evening. The most intense slow-moving deluges, will cause some spot flooding, intense lightning, and a slight chance of hail.

Tonight

Scattered heavy showers and thunderstorms will continue overnight and at times merging to longer spells of rain, with local deluges and spot flooding possible. Remaining warm and humid with temperatures staying above 14 to 17 degrees in light northerly or variable winds.

Tomorrow

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will tend to become confined to the southern half of Leinster through the morning with a continued risk of spot flooding and intense lightning. It will turn drier further north during the afternoon while the showers will become lighter and more isolated as longer sunny spells develop. Highest temperatures will return closer to average, ranging between 17 and 22 degrees, warmest in the south, in light to moderate northerly winds.

Otherwise winds will be light northerly or variable. While a few isolated heavy showers or thunderstorms may develop throughout the day, they will gradually increase in coverage through the late afternoon and evening. The most intense slow-moving deluges, will cause some spot flooding, intense lightning, and a slight chance of hail.

Remaining warm and humid with temperatures dropping to between 11 and 13 in Ulster and north Connacht, generally staying above 14 to 17 degrees elsewhere in light northerly or variable winds.

Tomorrow

On Monday scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect the southern half of the country mostly, becoming intense through the afternoon with an enhanced risk of flooding.

Outlook

OVERVIEW: Cooler and cloudier with occasional showers or longer spells of rain. MONDAY NIGHT: Showers will gradually die out in the south to leave a mostly dry night with clear spells. Lowest temperatures of 10 to 15 degrees, remaining warmest near the east coast in a moderate northerly breeze, fresh at times near northward facing coasts. TUESDAY: Cooler and cloudier with scattered light showers. Highest temperatures of 15 to 19 degrees, mildest in the south, in moderate to fresh northerly breezes. TUESDAY NIGHT: Showers will die out early in the night, leaving a dry night with a mix of cloud and clear spells. Lowest temperatures of 8 to 13 degrees in moderate northerly breezes. WEDNESDAY: A dry day with a mix of cloud and sunny spells in the morning and widespread hazy sunshine developing in the afternoon. Highest temperatures of 15 to 20 degrees, warmest along the south coast in mostly light northwesterly breezes. WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Clear spells early in the night, cloud will increase from the west with rain spreading into Atlantic coastal counties towards morning. Lowest temperatures of 8 to 14 degrees, mildest in the west, as light westerly breezes back southerly through the night. THURSDAY: A band of rain, which may turn heavy at times, will cross the country through the morning, followed by scattered showers through the afternoon, clearing to more widespread sunny spells in the west through the evening.
