Tuesday — Heavy, slow-moving showers are expected in the north and east, although it will be brighter and drier elsewhere with highs of 10 to 13 degrees.

Outbreaks of rain will move from the south-west of Munster into other areas during the day, with some heavy falls expected across southern counties; temperatures will reach between 16 to 19 degrees.

Tuesday night will see a few residual patches of light rain and drizzle, with variable cloud and clear spells.

Wednesday — A largely dry is in store, although it will be rather cloudy through much of the midlands, north and east, according to Met Éireann.

Generally dull and cloudy conditions in western and south-western counties with patchy rain and drizzle becoming more persistent as the day progresses.

Heavy rain is expected in Atlantic coastal counties on Wednesday evening and this will spread countrywide on Wednesday night; lows of 11 to 13 degrees.

Thursday — Met Éireann predicts that it will be a breezy day with a mix of sunshine showers; top temperatures of 15 to 18 degrees.
