A cloudy day will give way to some sunny spells later on although showers will affect the southern parts of the country, Met Eireann has predicted. 

There will be similar conditions over Thursday and Friday before it becomes more unsettled as we get into the weekend.

And forecasters have warned rain and showers will return next week after a largely dry spell.

Highest temperatures today will range between five and eight degrees over the northern half of the country but ranging seven to 11 degrees further south.

It will be a dry and cloudy night with patches of mist and a slight frost will develop where skies are clear. The mercury will drop to as low as freezing point to four degrees in light north-easterly or variable breezes.

It will be cooler tomorrow and cloudy too with just a few sunny spells breaking through. Most areas will stay dry, although there may be some light showers.

It will stay dry overnight apart from some continued light showers, mainly in the north and east while temperatures of -1 to four degrees will see some frost and mist patches forming in light easterly breezes.

It will be dry for most of Friday, with a mix of cloud and sunny spells, the best of which will be in the eastern half of the country. Some showers will affect coastal fringes of Munster and Connacht before rain and drizzle move into Connacht and Munster.

It will remain dry elsewhere with some clear spells and lowest temperatures wil drop as low as freezing point in the north and east, with some frost developing, to six degrees in the southwest.

Saturday will be a dull and cloudy day as rain and drizzle gradually extends eastwards. Highest temperatures will be between five and nine degrees with moderate to fresh southerly winds easing during the day.

There will be some outbreaks of rain and drizzle overnight but a band of showery rain will approach from the west towards morning, affecting Atlantic counties.

Showery rain will slowly edge eastwards over Sunday followed by more scattered showers. Highest temperatures of eight to 11 degrees in moderate, occasionally fresh, southerly winds.

Me Éireann says an “unsettled regime” is set to be established for early next week with rain and showers, and breezy at times too.
