Summary: There will be some showers or outbreaks of rain early in the coming week but high pressure will come to dominate our weather as the week goes on.

Tuesday: A largely dry and bright start to Tuesday with sunny spells and just isolated showers in northwest. However, it will become cloudier through the morning as showery outbreaks of rain spread across the northern half of the country. Highest temperatures of 10 to 13 degrees in light southwesterly or variable winds.
Tuesday night: Any lingering rain will clear to the east early on Tuesday night to leave a dry night with clear spells. Lowest temperatures of 0 to 4 degrees with patches of mist and fog in a light easterly breeze.
Wednesday: Remaining largely dry into Wednesday with just isolated showers, mainly in the north and east. After a bright start to the day it will become cloudier in the afternoon but still with some sunny spells. Highs of 10 to 14 degrees, coolest along eastern coasts in a light to moderate easterly breeze.
Wednesday night: Dry on Wednesday night with long clear spells developing. However, mist and fog will form in places in a light easterly breeze. Lowest temperatures of 1 to 4 degrees.
Thursday: Thursday will be another bright and mainly dry day with sunny spells. Highest temperatures of 9 to 14 degrees, coolest in the east and southeast in moderate southeasterly winds.
