ENJOY the current run of spring weather while you can because it won't last long, according to Met Éireann.

A high pressure system that brought mostly dry weather and sunny spells to many areas over the past week will be replaced by an Atlantic regime of rain and wind from tomorrow, forecaster Aoife Kealy said.

However, the good weather should stick around for today, especially in the east, with sunny breaks but more cloud and patchy drizzle. There will be light rain in mostly western and southern coastal counties and daytime highs of 10C to 12C.

"We still have high pressure centred south-west of us but that will gradually pull away from Monday," Ms Kealy said.

Cloud will begin to thicken from tonight, especially in the west and north-west, with patchy light rain and drizzle becoming more persistent by dawn.

Conditions will turn more unsettled from tomorrow onwards, with "weather fronts crossing the country with more persistent rain and windy conditions".

"It will be changeable at times with showery conditions," Ms Kealy added.

Wednesday will be showery and breezy but there may be the occasional sunny breaks.

However, conditions will go downhill again by Thursday as another weather front moves in with more showers and spells of rain and moderate to fresh winds.

Temperatures will remain in the low double digits during the day, dropping to low single digits overnight.
