Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow fog warning for the entire country tonight.

The warning is in place from 1am tonight until 11am Monday morning, with the national forecaster saying: “Mist and fog will form again tonight, becoming dense, especially in some midland areas, leading to poor visibility.”

It comes after the forecast showed that Ireland’s unusually warm autumn weather will continue for the next 10 days.

A high-pressure zone will remain fixed over the country for over a week, offering further glorious autumnal sunshine and temperatures up to 16 degrees, particularly across Munster and parts of south Leinster.

However, it will slowly weaken from the end of next week and it is predicted that October could end on a very stormy note.

From October 23rd, more unstable weather conditions will develop, bringing heavy rainfall and the potential for blustery winds.

Halloween is likely to prove both wet and windy with Met Éireann warning that the potential for severe weather cannot be ruled out. It added that overnight frost may develop from mid-October onwards.

But before that, the next fortnight is likely to be blessed with spells of bright sunshine, drier than normal conditions, and rain spells largely confined to the west.

Monday will see mist and fog patches giving way to bright or sunny spells through the morning although it will be generally cloudier over the northern half of the country with a few spots of drizzle about in west Ulster.

Temperatures will reach highs of 13 to 15 degrees before dropping to between six and nine degrees overnight.
