Another day, another weather warning.

Another day, another thunder warning, to be precise, as the thunderstorms that have been prevalent across the country since the weekend look set to continue until at least Tuesday night.

On Tuesday morning, Met Éireann issued a status yellow thunder warning for the entire province of Leinster, as well as Tipperary and Waterford, valid from 7am until 9pm tonight.

Thunderstorms are expected at various stages throughout the day in affected counties, with “severe downpours” likely to lead to some surface flooding. There will also be some hail to contend with, so if you’re going to be out and about, make sure to plan accordingly.

While it will be wet and a little wild with the hail and thunderstorms, Tuesday will also be a warm day, with temperatures reaching highs of 22 degrees.

According to Met Éireann, that changeable weather is set to continue for the rest of the week, although thunderstorms will be less likely than in recent days.

Persistent and heavy rain is likely to be a feature of the coming days, along with occasional dry and bright spells, with top temperatures exceeding 20 degrees at times.

The forecaster had flagged that a spell of warm and more settled weather was on its way, but with the outlook for this weekend indicating “changeable and breezy” conditions, we might have to wait until next week before it arrives.
