Temperatures are expected to rise a bit today, as the rain is set to clear away in the afternoon according to Met Éireann.

The day will start pretty dry for the most part, as any mist or fog from last night begins to lift. The remaining drizzle or light rain in the east and northeast should also start to disappear.

As it moves into midday, a spell of rain will develop on west and southwest coasts, which will eventually make its way east throughout the afternoon.

However, clearer conditions will emerge a bit later, with the occasional scattered shower. Thankfully, maximum temperatures are expected to hit between seven to 11 degrees today, accompanied by light southerly winds at first, which become stronger.

Tonight is also a bit of a mixed bag, as there will be both showers and dry spells throughout. Temperatures will go down to four to seven degrees, with mist later developing due to the wind.

Friday will begin similarly in that the rain will be stopping and starting a bit around the country. However, a band of more prolonged showers will develop in Atlantic coastal counties later in the afternoon, and it’ll slowly make its way eastwards.

Maximum temperatures are expected to range from seven to 10 degrees, with light to moderate southwesterly breezes.

The weekend will similarly continue with this changeable and unsettled weather. On Saturday for example, it’s expected to be mainly dry - except for at night when rain will extend from the Atlantic, with some heavy falls in places accompanied by a lot of wind.

Things look a bit nicer for Sunday though, as temperatures are set to increase to between nine to 12 degrees.
