There’s nothing worse than sitting in an exam hall, trying to ignore the glorious sunshine outside.
But that won’t be a problem for the 119,000 students who are sitting state exams this Wednesday.
Heavy rainfall and cool temperatures than is the norm for June are expected this week – in other words, the weather’s going to be miserable.
The June Bank Holiday saw the sun make an appearance.
Now, he’s going away for a while.
Met Eireann are predicting heavy rain to sweep across the country from the West tomorrow.
Isolated thunderstorms are also being forecast and highest temperatures will range between 14 and 17 degrees Celsius.
Wednesday will see more showers in most parts of the country.
Thursday will be drier – but the rain will be moving in again that evening.
Friday will be dry, but temperatures will be noticeably cooler due to easterly winds strengthening in all areas.
Next weekend will be quite wet in many parts of the country, with further rain or showers.
There is a bright spot though – temperatures are expected to pick up.
