No sign of a heatwave as dreary weather to continue

IT'S August, so that can only mean one thing: rain.

After a dull and dreary bank holiday weekend, there looks to be no end in sight to the bleak conditions.

The weather forecast for the week ahead remains in the clouds, after our promised 'heatwave' failed to surface this weekend, leaving Dubliners with humid conditions and no sunshine.

According to Met Eireann, tonight will be drier with brighter conditions, but with the threat of showers.

Tomorrow will be another clammy and cloudy day, but it will be dry in the afternoon.

Temperatures will be high all week, as high as 22°C in places, but there is no sign of sunshine coming our way later on in the week.

Rain will continue through Wednesday night and into Thursday then gradually clear to showers.

It will become cooler and fresher from Friday onwards.

Top temperatures will remain between 15-17°C.

We can continue to expect a moderate breeze with some sunny spells, but scattered showers will be continuous throughout the week and into the weekend.
