After a miserable July, August has given us a few fine (and well overdue) days of sunshine.
But will it last? Well, according to Met Éireann, tomorrow – Wednesday – looks set to be another bright and warm day in the West.
It will be the last summery day for a while – but the forecast for the rest of the week is not all doom and gloom either.
Tomorrow’s temperatures could reach 23 degrees after a dull start to the day, and it will be bright and sunny across Galway in the afternoon.
Winds will be light and variable tomorrow, but Thursday could bring more showers in the West.
Thursday will will begin dry and bright in many areas with some sunny spells though and the highest temperatures will be around 22 degrees in the afternoon.
Met Éireann say that it will be very mild and humid on Thursday night, with spells of showery rain likely in many areas along with a risk of thunder. The lowest temperatures will be between 14 and 17 degrees.
Friday will be cloudy again, with some showers throughout the day – but it will remain quite warm.
The weather chiefs say that the current indications suggest that the weekend will bring warm sunny spells and some occasional showers.
It will still be rather close with light winds, and daytime temperatures will be in the low 20’s inland and the high teens at the coast with afternoon sea breezes developing.
Night-time temperatures will be around 13 to 15 degrees.
