Ireland weather: Met Eireann warn thundery Tuesday in store but make interesting temperature prediction

Met Éireann have warned of a few thundery showers on Tuesday - but have confirmed that signs and models over the next few days could see temperatures hit 17C in the second week of November.

We've seen all kinds of weather over the last couple of weeks, with status yellow warnings for wind and rain, and orange alert for much of the country before things started to settle.

In particular, Corkonians are once again waking up on Tuesday to severe flooding on some roads around the Rebel County having taken a tonking from heavy rain showers on Monday.

The news doesn't really get any better for them on Tuesday with rain and wind continuing to linger and "squally, thundery showers" in store for much of the island.

It'll also feel a little bit nippier, as Met Éireann say: "Today will be a bright, fresh day with some sunny spells and scattered heavy or thundery showers. Highest temperatures of 10 to 13C in moderate to fresh and gusty southwest to west winds."

"Showers will continue tonight, easing slightly and gradually becoming more confined to the western half of the country. Lowest temperatures of 5 to 8c in moderate southwest winds."

Things continue to be unsettled as we move through the rest of the week, with Wednesday set to bring more showers and cloud, particularly for the counties on the Atlantic coast.

If you ever needed a snapshot of the Irish weather though, then Thursday is your day for it.

Met Éireann say: "Mild, humid and blustery with outbreaks of rain and drizzle. Highest temperatures of 14 to 17C in fresh to strong southwest winds.

"Cloudy with rain turning more persistent and possibly heavy at times with a risk of localised flooding. A very mild night with lowest temperatures of 13 to 15 degrees in moderate to fresh southerly winds."

In case you missed that, it's going to hit 17C in the second week of November.
