Mostly cloudy and misty in places this morning, with showery outbreaks of rain in the southwest edging northeastwards over the country, turning heavy in places this afternoon and evening. Some drier and sunnier intervals will also occur. Top temperatures 11 to 14 degrees, in light to moderate southeasterly breezes, veering southerly later.Tonight
Further outbreaks of rain will spread northwards overnight in a light to moderate southerly airflow. Hill and coastal fog will develop also. Lowest temperatures of 5 to 8 degrees Celsius, coolest across Ulster.
Early mist patches clearing to a mainly cloudy day tomorrow, Wednesday, with showery bands of rain, locally heavy, feeding in from the Atlantic. Some drier periods too, best across eastern areas. Highest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees Celsius, in freshening southerly breezes.
OUTLOOK: Pleasantly mild and humid for much of the week in a moderate, occasionally fresh southerly flow. Very mixed however as a steering low in the nearby Atlantic feeds up bands of sometimes heavy rain, longer drier spells occurring equally too though. Frost free by night.
TOMORROW NIGHT: Largely dry, but some scattered outbreaks of rain will push up again later in a southerly flow - hill and coastal fog too. Lowest temperatures 3 to 7 degrees Celsius, coolest across Ulster where it should remain mostly dry.
WEDNESDAY: Rather cloudy and breezy with scattered outbreaks of rain, some heavy bursts locally. Windows of mild sunshine occurring too though, especially across the central belt of the country. Highest temperatures of 12 to 16 degrees Celsius, in a freshening southerly wind.
THURSDAY: Another mild, humid and breezy day, with further scattered outbreaks of rain. Rain may however turn very heavy and persistent later with the risk of spot flooding. Highest temperatures 11 to 15/16 degrees Celsius, best values across the northern half of the country.
FRIDAY: Not quite as mild with afternoon highs of 10 to 14/15 degrees, best values for the north of Leinster. Another breezy day with scattered outbreaks of rain, most of it showing up across Atlantic counties, in a fresh south to southwest flow.
NEXT WEEKEND: Probably a bit fresher for Saturday with well scattered showers. Milder again on Sunday but with misty drizzle closer to the Atlantic.
