Met Eireann says that the weather is going to be horrendous all week
Ladies, the weather this morning is fairly shocking.
It's lashing rain, and it is also genuinely chilly.
And the bad news? Looks like we're set with this kind of weather for the rest of the week.
According to Met Eireann:
Wednesday will see clear spells overnight, with some showers in places too, a few heavy. Cool, lowest temperatures 4 to 7 C., in light variable breezes.
A few patches of mist around dawn also.
Thursday will see a bright, fresh day, with sunny spells and showers. The showers are likely to be heaviest and most frequent over south Munster, south Leinster and also in the northwest of the country, with a risk of some hail and thundery downpours.
Moderate northwest breezes will be fresh on parts of the Atlantic Seaboard. Some further showers over north and northwestern areas overnight, but drying out elsewhere, with clear skies and slack variable breezes. Cool, lowest temperatures 4 to 7 C.
Friday will be another showery day, but some bright or short sunny spells also. Some of the showers will turn heavy, with a few thundery downpours likely at times too.
Top temperatures 12 to 16 C., in moderate west to northwest breezes.
The weekend will be fresh and rather cool, with showers set to develop each day, some of them heavy. But some bright or sunny spells also.
So yeah, according to Met Eireann, we'll see lots of rain, and lower temperatures than we're used to this time of year.
