DUBLIN, Ireland - After a two-week long heatwave and warnings of the hot weather prolonging in the country, now some parts of Ireland have witnessed the return of rainfall.

According to Met Eireann, some parts of the country witnessed “isolated showers” this week.

Forecasters said that after a period during which most of Ireland was left without water, parts of the Republic received a slight reprieve in the form of drizzles and possible showers.

The Met Eireann has said that cloud has moved over Ireland which will bring a little patchy rain or drizzle to some northern areas.

While the parts of the country were mostly dry, with just an isolated shower, the south and southeast part of Ireland witnessed the best of the sunshine - with areas in the south being the warmest.

Forecasters said that the highest temperatures of 16 to 19 degrees was witnessed in many northern and western regions but elsewhere temperatures reaching 20 to 23 degrees.

For Wednesday night, forecasters have said that parts of the country will face the odd spot of mist or drizzle, only to return to mainly dry weather, with lows of 11 to 15 degrees.

Weather on Thursday is forecast to be mostly dry with some isolated showers.

Further, the Met Eireann is predicting highs of 17 to 19 in many northern and western regions but elsewhere temperatures will reach 20 to 23 degrees in light northerly or variable breezes.
