Overnight severe thunderstorms in parts of the East, Midwest and North of the country continue to clear away this morning, with thunderstorms presently affecting a large portion of North Sligo, North Leitrim, Donegal and Derry.

Not all areas in the warning zones have received thunderstorms overnight due to the extremely unpredictable nature of thunderstorms. Warnings are issued based on computer models, calculations and only where there is a credible risk of severe weather occurring. The extremely localised nature of such storms makes it a forecasting nightmare for meteorologists.

Further showers will develop today in parts of the Midlands and North of the country, with more organised showery rain pushing into Munster and South Leinster. Feeling warm still in northern areas with temperatures of up to 22 or 23 degrees Celsius.

The weekend weather looks very mixed, with showers or longer spells of rain at time’s. some of the showers will be heavy and thundery in nature, with a small risk of localised flooding in some areas.

Saturday will be very showery day countrywide with a risk of some thundery downpours in places. Cooler than of late with highs of up to 18 degrees Celsius. Winds will be westerly in direction or variable around the north coast as the low pressure responsible for this unsettled spell will pass overhead on Saturday.

Remaining unsettled on Sunday, especially so across the northern half of the country where further outbreaks of heavy and times persistent rain will continue for much of the day. The best of the drier and brighter weather will be found in the south and southwest of the country. Highs of up to 17-18 degrees Celsius.

Monday too will be a day of sunshine and showers, heaviest across the northwest of the country, with the best dry and bright weather occurring in the south and southeast. Cool with highs of up to 17 degrees Celsius in fresh northwesterly winds.

Tuesday will be the best day of the week as Ireland lies in between weather systems allowing for mostly dry and bright conditions to develop with highs of up to 19 degrees Celsius in some sunnier spots.

Wednesday and Thursday will be showery days overall with some longer spells of rain possible on Thursday as a low pressure approaches from the southwest. Cool with highs of up to 17-18 degrees Celsius. Westerly winds throughout.

Friday will be very unsettled with a deepening Atlantic low pressure system passing overhead, bringing with it some heavy falls of rain.

There are some signs that our weather may try to settled down for a while from the 5th of July onwards as higher pressure seems to develop to the southwest of Ireland before gradually pushing northeast wards across the country. This however is far from certain given the distance away from the present moment. Further updates on this possibility over the coming days.
