Met Éireann has said many areas will be dry and bright this morning. However, it will become wet and windy as rain in the southwest gradually moves up over the country.
Many areas dry & bright at first, but all parts will become wet & windy for a time as rain in the southwest gradually extends northeastwards over the country. Brighter intervals & showers (some of them heavy), will follow from the SW this afternoon & evening. Highs of 16 to 19°C. pic.twitter.com/de0JQyex0Z— Met Éireann (@MetEireann) September 23, 2019
