RAIN will sweep in across the country today, replacing the bitterly cold temperatures we experienced over the past week, according to Met Éireann.

Wet weather will move in from the west this morning and extend nationwide through the course of the day.

Heavy falls are expected in the west and northwest by this afternoon and evening, with a risk of spot flooding.

However temperatures will climb to between 7C to 10C today, although there will be moderate to fresh gusty southwest winds that will be especially strong in Atlantic coastal counties.

Rain is expected to persist tomorrow and into tomorrow night, although temperatures will remain mild with daytime highs of between 8C and 11C, but a few degrees colder in the North.

The picture should improve on Wednesday as a high pressure system moves in bringing drier weather on Wednesday and Thursday before rain moves in again on Friday.

The unsettled conditions are expected to remain for the weekend.
