Rain with Possible spot flooding over the next few days?

" Met Eireann "

Tomorrow

Still a few outbreaks of rain or drizzle tomorrow, but many places will be dry. Later in the day, a spell of persistent rain will develop in the west and north, turning heavy in the evening in parts of the west.

Outlook

Rain will spread eastwards to all areas on Friday night and will be persistent and heavy in places. It will clear away to the east by noon on Saturday with sunny spells and scattered showers following for the rest of the day. Sunday will start off dry and bright over most of the country. However, rain will develop in the west early in the day and then spread eastwards to all areas. It will clear in the evening and early night with showers or longer spells of rain following. Monday will be cool, blustery and showery with fresh westerly winds. Further spells of rain or showers will spread from the west on Tuesday with some heavy falls possible in Munster and south Leinster. Scattered showers will follow on Wednesday.

M.T Cranium

FRIDAY ... Variable cloud, showers edging somewhat further east at times, giving 2-5 mms in parts of west and north, may stay dry in east and south where somewhat warmer.

FRIDAY NIGHT ... Showers or periods of rain, 5-10 mms potential.

SATURDAY ... Cloudy with rain at times in the morning, possible embedded thundershowers at times, rainfall potential 5-10 mms. A clearing trend is likely mid-day in the west and through the afternoon further east.

SUNDAY ... Although the overnight hours could become dry with fog patches following, more rain seems likely especially by afternoon and evening, and this rain could eventually become heavy (15-25 mms potential). There is some chance, however, that the southeast will remain dry until well into the afternoon, or at least that heavier rain won't begin until then.

MONDAY ... Frequent showers, cool, lows near 8 C and highs near 14 C.



Looks like the SOuth and East to be most effected.

I Think its time to pack in the table and chairs out the back

Rain.

I remember a few years ago around this time of the year it was my first week in college and for about 3 days in a row on my first week about 3 different low pressures passed through and dumped loads of rain on us leading to alot of flooding.This weekend and early next week might bring similar rain maybe.

Nice to get rain, the ground here is hard and the grass in parts is burning from a lack of water.
It has been a fairly dry summer if rather dull and cool.

Yesterday was such a nice day here its a shame we didn't get more days like that this summer with blue skies etc.
It's days like today that annoy me with its dull cloudy blandness.
I would prefer a good weekend of heavy rain than a day like today when the sun flirts with the clouds but never produces anything.
Bring on the weekend
