Met Éireann say we're going to be hit by rain before we see another heatwave
Temperatures will reach 25 degrees this week.
It looks like we're going to be in for another heatwave at the end of the week, however until then, there will be showers covering the country.
While temperatures will reach 19 degrees today, we're going to see rain and drizzle in the north east of the country, which will likely become heavy.
Met Éireann said: "Some brighter spells across the eastern half of the country to begin the day. Dull elsewhere with outbreaks of rain and drizzle extending northeastwards during the morning and afternoon; some heavier bursts are likely. Parts of the east may stay almost fully dry.
Brighter spells across the E half of the country to begin. Dull elsewhere,rain & drizzle extending N during the morning & aft; some heavier bursts are likely.

"Becoming drier and brighter in the south later with rain turning patchier in other areas. Top temperatures of 16 to 19 degrees, in light to moderate southwesterly breezes."
It will be mostly the same tonight, along with some fog and mist.
"Rain and drizzle will become patchy early tonight with a lot of dry weather following. Some mist or shallow fog patches too. Later in the night southerly breezes will begin to freshen up along the west and southwest coast, and rain will move in off the Atlantic. Lowest temperatures 10 to 13 degrees."
