Warm, muggy weather to continue for the rest of the week, according to Met Éireann

Expect more thunderstorms and damp armpits as we move into the weekend


The warm and humid weather looks set to continue into next week, according to Met Éireann’s latest forecast.

Following a Status Yellow rainfall warning last night in seven counties in the south of the country, things will brighten up over the course of the day today, with top temperatures reaching 26 degrees. However, more heavy and thundery downpours are likely to hit in the evening, mainly in the south and southwest.

Tonight will be another very humid night, with temperatures reaching 17 degrees.

Tomorrow, the country will see a misty, muggy start to the day, and while the continued risk of rain will remain in Munster, south Leinster and Connacht, it will be dry elsewhere, with temperatures reaching 26 degrees in the warmest areas (likely in the west).

As we move into the weekend, the muggy, humid weather will remain, with a continued likelihood of thunderstorms. There will be some showers over Munster and south Leinster on Friday evening, but remain dry elsewhere, with some fog patches likely to develop.

Saturday will see a wet start to the day in the south, with sunny spells and scattered showers forecast for the rest of the day – again, temperatures will remain high, reaching 20-24 degrees.

Sunday’s mix of sunny spells and heavy showers will extend into Monday, which will see a risk of thunderstorms in the afternoon.

The humid weather looks set to continue well into next week, as Met Éireann predicts unsettled conditions as the temperatures gradually decline.
