It’s a foggy and drizzly morning in parts of the country including south Dublin and although occasional bright spells are predicted for later, we will hit by a deluge of "widespread blustery showers" later on.

Some of these showers, from the southwest, will be heavy and with a risk of hail and isolated thunderstorms.

Highest temperatures today will creep up to about five to seven degrees in northern Ulster but the mercury will climb to a milder eight to 11 degrees elsewhere.

The blustery showers will merge at times tonight to form longer spells of rain early tonight and tomorrow will start off with bright spells to start in the east.

However, and you guessed it, rain in the north and west will extend to most areas through the middle of the day while temperatures will struggle to get above four to eight degrees.

Bands of rain or showers will continue over Wednesday night, but clearing by morning with occasional clear spells developing in the west and south.

Thursday will be mostly cloudy with scattered outbreaks of rain, however some clear spells may develop later over Munster. Showers will be mostly confined to coastal counties overnight before Friday arrives with some wintry spells.

On Friday night however, temperatures will dip to a freezing -3 degrees with frost and some icy patches developing in light to moderate northwest winds. There will be scattered wintry showers in the northwest.

Saturday will be mostly dry with sunny spells, however there is a risk of scattered showers in the northern and eastern coastal counties.

The outlook after that is for the weather to turn colder with northeast to east winds feeding in wintry showers at times while hard ground frosts can be expected at night.
