The mild weather is here to stay with the mercury set to reach 12 degrees today despite a foggy start to the day.

According to Met Éireann, frost and fog will gradually clear this morning with many areas set to enjoy sunny spells.

But it will remain cloudier across southern coastal counties. Highest temperatures of eight to 12 degrees are expected, with light to moderate easterly breezes.

Tonight will be cold, dry and mostly clear. Temperatures will hit lows of -2 to +2 degrees - being coolest in the midlands - with some frost developing, along with mist and fog patches.

Tuesday will see similar dry conditions with spells of sunshine. It will become cloudier throughout the afternoon however.

Highest temperatures will again peak at a balmy 12 degrees but residents of Ulster and the eastern coastal counties will see slightly colder conditions.

Tuesday night is set to be generally dry under broken clouds with just the slight risk of some light showers in the southeast by morning. There might be some frost as temperatures hit lows of between -1 to +3 degrees.

Some stray showers are possible across Leinster and east Munster on Wednesday. Though most other areas will stay dry and cloudy, with occasional sunny spells. Temperatures are set to range from seven to 12 degrees.

Thursday will be a duller and cooler day overall. Met Éireann forecasters say it’ll be mostly dry, though isolated patches of drizzle may occur along the coast. Highest temperatures of five to eight degrees are forecasted, with mostly light easterly breezes.

By night, it’ll turn mostly cloudy in the southwest with some patchy rain or drizzle at times. Thankfully, it’ll be dry with occasional clear spells elsewhere, with patchy frost possible in sheltered spots. Lowest temperatures of one to four degrees are expected.

Unfortunately, the sunshine is set to break on Friday, as it’ll be mostly cloudy with patchy rain and drizzle at times in Munster. Temperatures from between five to nine degrees are forecasted.

And Met Éireann say it’s set to become more unsettled over the weekend with spells of heavy rain at times.
