The weather this week will be dry with high pressure keeping showers at bay, according to Met Eireann.

Today will continue to be dry, with some clear spells and patches of mist as temperatures drop to as low as 3 degrees.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) will continue dry, although mist and fog will clear during the morning. While Met Eireann predicts some cloudy periods, there will be some sunny spells at times too. Top temperatures of 17 to 20 C., in light to moderate variable breezes.

The rest of the week will see dry days, again with patches of mist and fog in places. These should clear giving way to sunny spells and temperatures up to 20 degrees.

It will be coolest on east and south coasts and warmest in the midlands and west.

Friday will be similar and will be mainly dry also. However a few showers may develop in coastal counties of the east and south, Met Eireann says.

Most areas will continue dry on Saturday and Sunday. However, there’ll be a risk of rain developing at times in southwest Munster and also a risk of some well scattered showers elsewhere. It will be warmer with highest temperatures of 18 to 21 degrees and light to moderate east to southeast breeze.
