Weather advisory issued for Ireland ahead of "heavy thundery showers"
A cold front has arrived.
The heatwave is officially over and there's no better way to be pulled back to reality than a good old fashioned weather advisory.
Met Éireann has issued a weather advisory for heavy thundery showers for the entirety of Ireland.
The forecaster warned of a cold front crossing the country on Monday afternoon, which will bring widespread heavy and possibly thundery showers.
The advisory comes into effect at 12pm on Monday and remains in place until 5am on Tuesday morning.
Downpours during this time will result in some hazardous driving conditions for motorists and could potentially lead to some spot flooding in some areas.
Areas most at risk are Leinster and east Munster later on Monday afternoon and into the evening, but much of these eastern counties will be dry until the evening.
Monday will be slightly cooler than recent days with highs of 18 to 23 degrees generally in moderate northwest breezes.
Met Éireann said that heavy showers with the risk of thunderstorms will continue through Tuesday and Wednesday.
Showery rain will linger across northern and eastern counties on Tuesday with a mix of bright spells and scattered showers developing elsewhere. Highest temperatures will be between 16 and 21 degrees.
