weather latest Ireland weather: Mild temperatures and cloudy conditions to persist until early next week





Just one word dominates the weather forecast for the next few days – cloud. 

A blanket of heavy cloud has settled over the country, Met Eireann has said, and looks likely to remain in place until early next week.

Today will be mostly dry and rather cloudy, but there will be some sunny spells too, especially in Munster, south Leinster and along the east coast. There may be a few spots of drizzle near north-western coasts and hills. Highs of 9 to 13 degrees, and it will be mildest in the south, in a light to moderate northerly breeze.

It will remain cloudy tonight with a little patch of drizzle drifting across the country at times, but most areas will stay dry.

Tomorrow will be another cloudy day, but with a good deal of dry weather. There will be just some patchy light drizzle at times, mainly on western and northern coasts and hills.

Saturday night will be mostly cloudy and dry. Although it will become misty with patchy light drizzle in Ulster edging southwards overnight. Lows of 3 to 6 degrees, in a light north-westerly breeze.

It will be a mostly dry day on Sunday but again the cloud will be thick enough to bring a little patchy drizzle at times. Highs of 9 to 11 degrees, in a light north-westerly breeze.

Lows of 2 to 6 degrees on Sunday night.

It will be similar on Monday with a lot of cloud around, but it will stay mostly dry, especially further east. There will be some drizzle at times, which may become more persistent in the west and north. Highs of 10 to 12 degrees.

“We begin to see a change in our weather from Tuesday as south-westerly winds strengthen,” Met Eireann said. “A mostly cloudy day with patchy light rain or drizzle at times but a lot of dry weather too and any rainfall amounts will be small. Highs of 11 to 13 degrees, in fresh south-westerly winds, strong on coasts.”

Wednesday will be a mostly cloudy day, with a band of rain crossing the country from the west later in the day. It will be breezy, with highs of 10 or 11 degrees in moderate south-westerly winds, becoming strong on western coasts.
