Ireland is set for a wet and windy weekend as Met Éireann predicts changeable and unsettled weather for the next five days. 

Thankfully today will remain dry and bright as early morning fog patches will clear allowing sunny spells to develop across most of the country.

Munster will remain cloudy and some patchy drizzle may appear across the south of the country but temperatures, nationally, are expected to reach highs of 12 degrees.

Tonight will be cold and dry but for the first time this week temperatures will not drop below two degrees and according to Met Éireann tomorrow will see the start of a period of extremely unsettled weather.

“Saturday will be mostly cloudy, with persistent rain and drizzle developing in southern coastal areas during the morning," the national forecaster revealed.

“Rain will turn heavier in parts of the south later with, much of Ulster will remain dry until evening.

“The conditions will remain mild, with maximum temperatures of 14 degrees, with mostly light easterly breezes, fresh along south and southwest coasts.

“Sunday will be cloudy, with scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle and patchy rain, especially in the north and east during the morning, but dry intervals will develop in most areas during the day.

“You can expect maximum temperatures of 15 degrees, but a spell of persistent rain will develop in the southwest in the evening, extending northwards on Sunday night.

“It will remain mild until Monday night, with further outbreaks of rain, but drier conditions will extend from the west.

“Tuesday will be more of the same with a few bright spells, but it will remain predominantly cloudy with some patchy light rain and drizzle.

“But current indications suggest that the weather for the rest of the week will be changeable and unsettled, with occasional rain and with the risk of some heavy showers in west and southwest coastal areas.”
