There is a possibility of some wintry showers, mainly over higher ground close to the Atlantic. Temperatures will reach between 6 to 9 degrees, dropping between 0 to 4 degrees tonight.
Scattered showers are set to continue overnight, with longer spells of rain later on and a risk of some wintry falls on high ground. Some frost is possible in sheltered areas.
Tuesday – It will be another cold and blustery day with some widespread showers or longer spells of rain for a time tomorrow morning.
It will be drier and bright in the afternoon; however, scattered showers, some of which will be wintry, will follow in the afternoon also with a risk of hail and thunder.
Temperatures will be in the region of 5 to 8 degrees, although the national forecaster has warned that it may feel colder due to the “added wild-chill factor”.
There will be rain in Ulster and parts of the southwest tomorrow night with lows of -1 to +3 degrees.

Temperatures will range from 7 to 10 degrees, before dropping to 1 to 4 degrees on Wednesday night. There will be further outbreaks of rain, which will be heaviest and most persistent across the western half of Ireland.
Thursday – Heavy rain will clear before sunny spells and scattered showers will follow from the west with highs of 5 to 8 degrees. Clear spells and scattered showers are expected on Thursday night, but it will turn breezy across the west and north.
