Thundery showers expected on south coast as rain warning issued

The warning will be in place from 3pm today until 5am on Friday.

Thundery showers are expected on the south coast of the country today, according to Met Éireann.

The forecaster has issued a status yellow rain warning for Cork, Waterford and Wexford.

It will be in place from 3pm today until 5am on Friday.

Met Éireann has warned that “heavy or thundery” showery rain can be expected, bringing “the risk of spot flooding”.

Meanwhile, the Bank Holiday weekend is set to see some drier weather, with Monday shaping up to be the sunniest. 

While we may not see the temperatures that were seen during the heatwave, there is good news as Met Éireann is predicting a cloudy but “mostly dry” few days.

Friday will see a mix of showers and sunny spells but any rain will be confined to Atlantic coasts and the southwest early in the night.

Temperatures will be touching 20C and Saturday will see similarly warm weather.

There will be some light showers on Saturday that will be “more frequent” through the afternoon.

However, Met Éireann stated that these “will ease by evening time with some nice spells of sunshine developing”.

Saturday night will stay mostly dry before Sunday sees a cloudy start.

Some scattered showers will give way to a “mostly dry” afternoon with “some bright spells developing”.

It will be warm again with temperatures of around 19C.

Sunday night will see clear spells and it will remain dry for the most part.

Monday looks set to see the best of the Bank Holiday weather with sunny spells expected and just “a few scattered light showers”.

Temperatures will be warm, reaching 20C in some places.
