Met Éireann say we're in for a very hot and very rainy day

We don't know which is worse.

We might get burnt, but we might also get lashed on. Probably both.


As Met Éireann issued a status yellow rainfall warning for 14 counties yesterday, we're certainly going to see the effects today.

From the forecast, it seems like the whole country is going to get washed away, except for the north and east Ulster.

The weather forecaster said: "Mostly cloudy today with showery rain in the south and west extending northwards to affect much of the country by this afternoon.

"Some heavy bursts of rain, especially in southern coastal areas. The best of any dry weather will be across north and east Ulster. Highest temperatures of 14 to 16 degrees generally but ranging 17 to 20 degrees in parts of Ulster. Winds will be mostly moderate, easterly in direction with some hill and coastal mist."

Tonight will be mostly the same with even a few "thundery downpours":


"Showery rain will continue to extend northwards this evening and early tonight with a few thundery downpours following as the rain clears. Areas of mist and fog will develop as easterly breezes fall mostly light. A humid night with lowest temperatures of 10 to 14 degrees."

We think we might stay inside this evening...
