Weather expert says when he thinks heavy rain is most likely to arrive as ‘unsettled week’ forecast

An unsettled week in the forecast looks set to continue as Ireland waits for summer conditions to return.

While the country basked in glorious sunshine and heat for most of June, temperatures have dropped in recent days and rainfall has increased, reports The Mirror.

This trend looks set to continue next week, with Met Eireann forecasting plenty of rain, some heavy rain and cooler temperatures than May and June.

Meteorologist Alan O’Reilly, who runs the popular @CarlowWeather Twitter account, explained that the heaviest rainfall could fall from Thursday night to Friday morning, when the west will be the wettest.

“An unsettled week ahead with temperatures below normal. Mainly showers up to Thursday evening with highest rainfall amounts in the West and lowest in the Southeast,” Mr O’Reilly tweeted, reports The Mirror.

Rain showers with lots of clouds are forecast for Monday, but there will be some sunshine throughout the morning. Showers will remain in the southwest throughout the afternoon and evening, with temperatures not rising above 18°C with a fresh west breeze.

Tuesday has a similar day, with showers and sunshine spells and high temperatures of 15°C to 19°C expected ahead of a big dry night.

Almost the same day is expected on Wednesday, with showers and sunshine and temperatures of 14 to 18 degrees Celsius.

Thursday will be cloudy with some light showers, but more persistent showers in the west and south-west during the day, with temperatures between 16°C and 20°C.

Friday will continue to be partly unsettled and windy, and there are likely to be some heavy rain bursts over the weekend, reports The Mirror.
