Ireland has enjoyed the best summer is literally decades, but alas it appears the good weather will soon be a thing of the past as temperatures are set to drop, quite dramatically, this week.
Yesterday was a gorgeous day for most as temps peaked at 24c.
Forecasters say that temperatures will drop to 14c later this week, which is a full 10c drop from the August bank holiday weekend highs of the mid 20s.
The National forecaster, Met Eireann say: “Tuesday night will be mostly dry with clear spells in the east at first but showery rain in the west will spread eastwards later in the night.”
“Lowest temperatures will fall to 10C to 12C. Light southwesterly winds will veer westerly and increase moderate by morning.”
Wednesday will be cold with showers scattered around the country with temperatures 14C to 18C.
The national forecaster continued: “Thursday will be showery day with showers turning heavy or thundery and the risk of hail.”
“It will continue to stay cooler than normal for the time of year with top temperatures around 14C to 17C in moderate westerly winds.”
Saturday will remain showery with strong winds heading northwesternly in direction.
