The good weather is to come to an end as Met Éireann reveal that “unsettled conditions” are in store for the country this week. 

Today will be generally dry with some sunny spells in the eastern half of the country. However, counties in the west and southwest can expect cloudy weather with some patchy drizzle and mist. Temperatures are set to reach highs of 10 to 13 degrees with a light northerly breeze.

It will remain cloudy tonight with occasional clear spells, but light showers will occur in western and southern coastal counties later.

Monday will be a mostly cloudy day with some sunny spells. Some patchy light rain or drizzle is likely too and will be more persistent on Monday night.

Forecasts show highest temperatures of nine to 12 degrees during the day with moderate south to southwest breeze.

By Tuesday night, a blanket of rain will slowly edge further eastwards. Chillier days are to come with lowest temperatures of five to eight degrees expected throughout the country.

Met Éireann predicts that Wednesday will be “changeable” with some “uncertainty in the forecast.” Current indications suggest breezy and conditions with a mix of showers and bright spells. Temperatures will drop slightly with highs of nine to 11 degrees.

On Thursday, light showers will fall in the morning while a heavier band of rain will cross the country later in the day. The showers will continue into Thursday night.

From Thursday night, colder conditions can be expected as temperatures overnight will reach lows of 1 to 4 degrees and showers will possibly turn “wintry at times.”

The cold weather will continue on Friday with a significant drop in temperature to highs of five to eight degrees. The risk of showers is high and it is set to be blustery with some clear and sunny spells.
