Washout July to continue as Met Éireann forecast spot flooding

More wet weather is on the way...

Met Éireann have released their weather forecast for this weekend and early into next week, and it certainly makes for grim reading.


According to the national forecaster, this weekend will see wet and unsettled conditions across the country, with a number of heavy downpours.

The first half of Saturday is set to be dull, wet and misty, with outbreaks of heavy rain at times which could result in some surface flooding.

The rain will remain for the majority of the day in the northern half of the country, however southern areas will see drier spells heading into the afternoon.


Met Éireann forecast more unsettled weather:

Despite the wet weather, the humid conditions look likely to continue with high temperatures of 20C forecast.

Sunday will be showery with outbreaks of rain across the country.


Some sunny spells will develop in the north and west of the country in the afternoon, although heavy showers are a possibility for eastern and southern parts. Highest temperatures are set for 20C again.

Heading into next week, conditions will be more favourable at the beginning of the week, before returning to spells of wet and blustery conditions.

Heavy showers may be seen later on Monday in the south and southeast, with outbreaks of rain and drizzle forecast for Tuesday.

Wednesday's forecast remains uncertain, although it is believed it will be wet and windy with widespread showers and southwesterly winds.


This rain could turn heavy at times, causing spot flooding in parts, with temperatures climbing as high as 19C.
