According to Met Éireann, this week looks set to be a bit drier.
Monday will see many places being dry, with any mist or fog in the morning lifting early on. Cloud will break on occasion, with few bright and sunny periods. The West will see a band of rain develop in the afternoon, though it should remain dry elsewhere. Temperatures will return to average levels and range from 10 to 13 degrees, with light southwest breezes.
Any remaining rain will clear eastwards into the Irish Sea on Monday night and it will become dry nationwide. There will be the odd isolated showers on the north coast. Minimum temperatures will vary from 1 to 4 degrees, with some frost forming
Tuesday: It will be mostly a brighter, fresher day on Tuesday with some sunny spells too. It will remain dry, apart from isolated coastal showers in the northwest. Top temperatures returning to normal levels for the time of year, between 8 and10 degrees. Breezes will be light to moderate, northwest to north in direction.
Tuesday night will be a fine, clear night, though it will be cold with minimum temperatures of minus 3 to plus 1 degree. This will of course, lead to a widespread frost with icy patches on untreated surfaces. Winds will be light northeasterly in direction.
Wednesday will again be mainly fine with a mix of cloud and crisp sunny spells after a frosty start. Maximum temperatures will range 6 to 9 degrees in light southeast to south breezes.
Wednesday night will see variable cloud amounts and clear spells. Lowest temperatures of minus 1 to plus 3 degrees Celsius in light southeast to south breezes with frost and a risk of icy patches.
Current indications suggest that Thursday will be a cloudier day, with scattered light rain or showers affecting eastern, southern and later western coasts. Top temperatures will vary from 5 to 8 degrees Celsius in light to moderate southerly breezes. Thursday night is expected to see cloudy periods, interspersed with clear intervals. Isolated coastal showers. Lowest temperatures of 2 to 4 degrees in light to moderate southeast breezes.
As of yet, there is some uncertainty as to how Friday will shape up, but current indications suggest a continuation of the mainly dry conditions for most with just patchy light rain and drizzle. Moderate southeasterly breezes generally, possibly strong and gusty in the northwest. Daytime highs around 6 to 8 degrees.
