Light rain, drizzle and mist will become mostly confined to southern counties this afternoon.
It will be dry tonight with fog and mist expected; temperatures will range from 14 to 17 degrees today and will drop to 3 to 8 degrees tonight.
Tuesday — Mist and fog will clear to give rise to a dry and calm day with sunny spells and highs of 15 to 19 degrees.
Met Éireann has said that high pressure — which will be centred near or over Ireland up until and including Saturday — will bring mostly dry, calm and settled conditions.
It predicts that most of the days will bring “long spells of autumn sunshine” with light breezes, although patchy drizzle is expected along northern coasts during Wednesday.
“Temperatures will continue to improve day-by-day, ranging from 17 to 20 degrees on Wednesday and 18 to 22 degrees, thereafter, possibly higher in some parts.”
It has warned that it will become chilly at night, with temperatures expected to drop to single-figures on Tuesday and Wednesday night.
