Weather forecast for the week sees some very high temperatures and a lot of thunderstorms

The definition of "a bit of a mixed bag".

After the weekend of sweaty temperatures mixed with rain and clouds and a freakishly powerful lightning storm, it looks this week will be... giving us more of the same?

No sign of a follow-up of the weather warnings that took up the majority of the country due to a high amounts of rainfall, but the week will be kicking off with some mighty fine temperatures, but the high and low pressures colliding will result in more than a few cracks of thunder and flashes of lightning throughout the entire week.

So, at the very least, it definitely won't be boring, weather-wise.

Here is the prediction for the week, as per Met Eireann:

MONDAY 28 MAY

Monday will be a warm and humid day with sunny spells. Some showers will break out, a few heavy with a slight risk of thundery burst in the north and northwest of the country. Top temperatures generally 20 to 25 Celsius in light variable breezes, but a little cooler along coasts.

TUESDAY 29 MAY

Tuesday will bring sunny spells and scattered showers, a few heavy or thundery with the showers most likely to develop in the Southwest and West during the afternoon. Still warm with top temperatures in the high teens to the low twenties in light east or northeast breezes.

The warm humid weather looks likely to continue for the rest of the week with light variable or Easterly breezes. The days will bring a mix of cloud and hazy sunny spells. Occasional heavy showers or thunderstorms are also likely to develop at times. Temperatures will remain above normal with daytime values in the high teens in cloud or patches of sea fog and into the low twenties in sunshine. Nights will be mild with temperatures remaining in double figures.
