There will be a bit of a breather from the heavy showers that swamped parts of the country yesterday before torrential rain returns later in the week. 

Met Eireann has predicted a dry couple of days ahead until more unsettled conditions mean the rest of the week and over the weekend will see another soaking.

“Today will be dry apart from a few light showers,” the forecaster has said. Although it will be “rather cloudy but some sunny breaks developing at times”.

Highest temperatures will hover between 17 and 20 degrees with light southwest or variable breezes.

Tonight will be mostly cloudy with a fair amount of dry weather and some patchy light rain or drizzle. More persistent rain will develop in the west overnight and temperatures will dip to between 11 and 14 degrees with light to moderate southerly breezes.

Tomorrow morning will be cloudy with rain spreading eastwards across the country and clearing in the afternoon. Brighter, drier weather will follow with sunshine and a few showers. Highest temperatures will hover between 16 and 19 degrees with moderate to fresh southerly winds becoming westerly as any rain clears.

Wednesday night will be mainly dry with clear spells at first, however, Thursday morning, will see heavy rain spreading eastwards across the country.

“Showers will follow during the afternoon,” Met Eireann adds. “Southerly winds will be strong and gusty near west and northwest coasts and will be fresh and gusty elsewhere.

“They'll become south-westerly as the rain clears and will continue strong in the west and northwest. Thursday night will continue blustery with some further showers, mainly in the west and north.

Friday will be breezy with sunny spells and scattered showers, but some will be heavy. The best of the sunshine will be in the southeast but temperatures will only rise to between 16 and 19 degrees with moderate to fresh westerly breezes.

Friday night will be mainly dry although rain will develop in the southwest overnight.
