Following a dry spell that lasted more than two weeks, the more familiar sight of cloud and rain has once again returned to County Clare.
Met Éireann is warning that heavy rain will continue to affect the West and South of the country during Thursday and for much of tomorrow before clearing northwards.
Showery rain is likely at times during Saturday but conditions are expected to improve for Sunday and the early days of next week with sunny spells and temperatures climbing back up to 20c. More unsettled weather is expected to return again after midweek however.
Figures from Met Éireann show that June has been exceptionally dry in County Clare with Shannon Airport so far recording just half of its average rainfall for the month. The mean temperature is also well above average at 15.3c. On June 18th, mercury levels at Shannon reached 25.9c.
