National

Today

Today will be mostly cloudy, with patches of drizzle, mist and fog. Some sunshine will break through later in the day. Humid with top temperatures of 17 to 22 degrees, highest over east Munster and south Leinster. Winds light variable or southwesterly.

Tonight

Misty and mostly cloudy tonight. Some patches of rain, drizzle and fog. Mild and humid, with light southerly breezes. Lowest temperatures 13 to 16 degrees.

Tomorrow

Tomorrow Tuesday will be mostly cloudy as well, with further patches of drizzle, mist and fog. There will be good dry periods as well with some warm sunshine over Leinster and east Munster. A spell of persistent rain will develop on west and northwest coasts later in the day. Warm and humid, with top temperatures 18 to 23 degrees, possibly higher in any prolonged sunshine. Moderate south to southwesterly winds will increase fresh.

Outlook

General: The weather will be changeable. Mild at first, but with some rain at times, fresher and cooler later in the week, with showers. Tuesday night: Breezy, with fresh and gusty south to southwest winds. Widespread rain for a time too, heavy in places and with some hill and coastal fog. Close and humid with lowest temperatures 12 to 15 C. But a clearance will develop in northern and western areas late in the night. Further rain, mist and low cloud in eastern areas early Wednesday, but the drier weather over Connacht, west Munster and Ulster will soon extend to all areas. So a largely dry and bright afternoon, with occasional sunny spells. Top temperatures 16 to 18 C., generally, but 19 or possibly 20 C., in eastern areas. Dry early Wednesday night, but further rain or showers will develop overnight. Present indications suggest that it will turn fresher and cooler for Thursday and Friday, with highs of just 14 to 17 C., each day. Some bright or sunny spells each day also, but showers too, some heavy and prolonged at times. Moderate to fresh west to northwest winds will be strong at times on exposed coasts. The nights will be cooler than of late also, with lows of 7 to 10 C.
