Met Éireann has forecast that temperatures are expected to remain high but downpours are expected throughout the week.

On top of this, the country is on alert for Tropical Storm Alex, which, although it will have lost much of its strength by the time it reaches Ireland and the UK from further west in the Atlantic, could make things worse as the tail end of the week approaches.

A forecaster told The Irish Mirror: “Still a lot of uncertainty around potential storm Thursday into Friday which includes the remnants of Tropical Storm Alex. Most models keep it out West but could still bring some strong winds Friday.”

Today is set to see sunny spells and some showers, with outbreaks of rain across south Munster by late morning and extending northwards across the country during the afternoon and evening, reaching north by nightfall.

Wednesday is set to also see sunny spells and showers, with the possibility of showers merging to give longer rainfall across the north.

Thursday will see scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle with conditions turning primarily dry with sunny spells by evening time.

Friday will be a breezy day with sunny spells and scattered showers as well as possible downpours.

Saturday is another bright and breezy day with long sunny spells and a few scattered showers.
