It’s a lovely sunny morning in Dublin but there’s heavy rain on the way in the coming days.

Fortunately the wet weather won’t last long and things are looking very promising for the weekend with Met Eireann forecasting temperatures above 20C.

Today will be dry with spells of hazy sunshine but cloud will build in the late afternoon with spots of drizzle in the evening although it will remain warm with highs of 17 to 20C.

It will start out dull tomorrow with lingering rain and drizzle before brighter, humid weather develops with top temperatures of between 16 and 19C.

Thursday is predicted to bring heavy rainfall across the country and it will be noticeably cooler on Friday before the return of glorious sunshine at the weekend with temperatures expected to climb as high as 22C on Sunday.

Here’s how things are looking over the next few days according to the national forecast:

Thursday: “Rain will move in to the north and west during the morning with sunny spells elsewhere. During the afternoon, rain will gradually become more widespread with some heavy falls.

“Rain will affect across the southern half of Ireland into the evening, whilst some late sunshine will break through elsewhere.

“Top temperatures will range 15 to 21degrees Celsius, warmest ahead of the rain across the south and east, in mostly moderate westerly winds.”
