Elsewhere, it will be a mostly dry night with a mix of cloud and just a few spots of light rain. Minimum temperatures of 6 to 8 degrees Celsius in strong and gusty southeasterly winds.
Sunday: Outbreaks of rain, locally heavy, spreading to most parts during the morning. Gusty southeasterly winds will veer westerly in Munster from afternoon, signalling a clearance to showers there.

Monday: Some uncertainty in the outlook, but indications are for a good deal of dry and bright weather to begin on Monday, with the best of sunshine across the midlands. There is a threat of patchy rain, mainly about Ulster and southwest Munster, however, perhaps turning more persistent for a time in southwest Munster. Top temperatures of 10 to 15 or 16 degrees, warmest in sunny breaks across the midlands. Winds mainly light southerly or southwesterly, backing moderate to fresh southeasterly in the south later.
Tuesday: Mainly dry in the north and east on Tuesday with bright or sunny intervals. Cloudier elsewhere with a risk of patchy light rain in places. Light southeasterly or variable breezes. Temperatures near or perhaps slightly above normal for the time of year.
Early indications for Wednesday and Thursday suggest mostly dry and settled conditions, with good sunshine and temperatures trending above normal for the time of year, although temperatures may be a little cooler near the east coast in an onshore easterly breeze.
