Ireland is to bask in glorious sunshine today with highs of 10 degrees after a chilly start to the morning.

Frost in parts of the midlands, east and south will ease to give way to "bright sunny spells" as the country soaks up the rays.

It will be dry in most places with the best of the sunshine in the east and south.

However, it will be cloudier further to the west and north with some patchy light rain and drizzle at times, mainly in coastal parts. Highest temperatures will reach seven to ten degrees in mostly light southwesterly or variable breezes, a little fresher by western and northwestern coastal parts.

Tonight will be dry and cloudy in the north and northwest with a little drizzle in parts of Ulster. Winds will be mostly light southwesterly or variable, fresher in northwestern coastal parts.

Overnight temperatures will plunge again to lows of -1 to +4 degrees, coldest in the east and south with some frost.

While tomorrow will see more mild conditions, with highs of seven to 11 degrees, there will be some outbreaks of rain and drizzle also.

And Met Eireann forecasters are warning of "very disturbed" weather by midweek.

A spokesperson revealed: "It will gradually turn more unsettled, with some very disturbed weather through midweek."

Tuesday will see wet and windy weather with more outbreaks of rain to follow on Wednesday.

"Extremely windy" conditions will lash some parts on Wednesday night with strong to gale force winds; southwest to begin then veering west to northwest, with some severe and damaging gusts.

A forecaster added: "There'll be further spells of rain overnight too, followed by heavy squally showers, some of hail and thunder. Turning colder with lowest temperatures of one to four degrees.

"Still windy on Thursday with widespread heavy squally showers, some of hail and thunder and with the possibility of some turning wintry over higher ground. Westerly winds will be fresh or strong and very gusty, with gales in coastal parts of the west and south. Feeling cold with highest temperatures of six to nine degrees."
