Overview

Leinster

Today

Cloud and outbreaks of rain will continue to clear northeastwards this morning, with sunshine and showers following. The showers will become fairly widespread across the province through the afternoon and evening, with some thunderstorms and a risk of localised spot flooding. Highest temperatures of 11 to 14 degrees in light to moderate southeasterly winds, becoming southwest in most places and decreasing mostly light later.

Tonight

There'll still be some lingering showers to begin tonight, but these will mostly die away, so becoming dry in most places with clear spells. Cloudier though for a time in parts of the south with a little rain and drizzle. Lowest temperatures of 3 to 7 degrees in just light variable breezes and with mist and fog forming and becoming dense in places.

Tomorrow

The mist and fog will clear early tomorrow morning, and it will be mainly dry to begin with some sunshine. Showers will develop though through the morning, becoming fairly widespread into the afternoon and evening, many heavy and with a risk of thunderstorms and spot flooding. Highest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees in light to moderate northwest to north breezes.

National

Today

Rain and cloud will gradually clear northeastwards this morning, with sunny spells and heavy showers following from the southwest. Heavy showers will become widespread across Munster, Leinster and Connacht through the morning and afternoon, with some thunderstorms and the risk of spot flooding. However, cloud and light rain will linger over much of Ulster through the day. Highest temperatures of 11 to 15 degrees in light to moderate southeasterly or variable winds.

Tonight

Showers will largely die out early tonight, with most areas becoming dry with clear spells and just isolated showers. It will be cloudier for a time in the southwest with patchy light rain and drizzle. Lowest temperatures of 4 to 8 degrees with mist and fog developing in a light variable breeze.

Tomorrow

Mist and fog will clear early tomorrow morning, leaving a largely dry start to the day with sunny spells and just isolated showers. Showers will again become widespread through the morning and afternoon, turning heavy with the risk of thunderstorms and spot flooding. Showers will gradually drift southwards in the evening and the north and northwest will become mainly dry. Highest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees in a light to moderate northerly breeze.

Outlook

SUMMARY: Remaining unsettled as we start into the new working week with some showers or spells of rain in places, but the showers won't be as heavy, with good dry spells mixed in too during the early days of the week. Heavy rain will spread from the west though through Wednesday night into Thursday, with some heavy showers following, with possibly some turning thundery again, especially on Friday. Heavy showers will die out early on Sunday night and the rest of the night will be dry in many places with some clear spells. Lowest temperatures of 4 to 8 degrees in light to moderate northwest winds, becoming westerly. Monday will bring some sunshine and while there'll be showers across the country, they won't be as heavy and as numerous as previous days, with good dry spells too. Highest temperatures of 11 to 14 degrees in mostly moderate westerly winds, fresher in coastal parts of the west and northwest. Monday night will be mainly dry with clear spells and just a few isolated showers. Lowest temperatures of 3 to 7 degrees in mostly light to moderate southwest to west winds, increasing fresh in coastal parts of the north and west. Tuesday will bring a mix of sunshine and further showers, but with cloud tending to increase from the northwest, with longer spells of rain too, especially in Ulster and possibly in Connacht later also. Highest temperatures of 11 to 15 degrees with in mostly moderate westerly winds, increasing fresh to strong and gusty in parts of the west and northwest. Tuesday night will bring a mix of cloud and clear spells with some showers and longer spells of rain in places. Lowest temperatures of 6 to 8 degrees in mostly moderate westerly winds, fresher for a time in coastal parts of the west and northwest. Wednesday will bring some good spells of sunshine and a scattering of showers, some possibly heavy across the northern half of the country, but elsewhere the showers will be lighter and with the showers tending to die out later. Highest temperatures of 13 to 16 degrees in mostly moderate westerly winds. There's some uncertainty as regards timing but it looks like an area of low pressure will come close by on Wednesday night, with some heavy rain spreading from the west through Wednesday night and into Thursday and it will be breezy or windy in places. Showers will follow through Thursday, with further showers on Friday, some heavy and possibly thundery.
