According to our friends at MET Éireann, Monday will start off dry with sunny spells and any frost clearing.
Cloud will build early in the north and northwest with rain here in the morning becoming widespread over the northern half of the country during the afternoon. It will stay dry over Munster and more southern parts of Leinster for daylight hours with mist and patchy rain here during the evening.
After a cold start temperatures will gradually rise to between 8 (Leinster) and 12 degrees in freshening southwesterly winds. Patchy rain and drizzle expected Monday night, with temperatures no lower than 4 to 8 degrees. Winds will be light to moderate in a southwesterly direction.
Tuesday will be rather cloudy overall with some patchy rain and drizzle at times. Winds will be light and variable in direction. Temperatures will range between 10 and 13 degrees. Overnight Tuesday night will continue rather cloudy and temperatures once again are unlikely to fall below 5 to 8 degrees with mostly light winds.
There'll be little change on Wednesday with mostly light southerly winds and temperatures still higher than usual for the time of year. It will continue rather cloudy though, with just a few sunnier breaks and some patchy rain, mostly on coasts.
Thursday is forecast to be bringing a spell of rain, which will turn heavy for a time before clearing. There'll be freshening southerly winds in advance of the rain. The winds will veer westerly and ease once the rain goes through. It'll turn colder with the clearing of the rain too, with the risk of a ground frost on Thursday night.
Met Éireann say that current indications for Friday and next weekend is for rain at times, with mainly west to southwest winds. They expect temperatures return to more typical values for the time of year.
