This will will be cool, according to Met Eireann. Today will be a bright, fresh and breezy day, it says, with sunny spells and scattered showers.

Cloud will increase in the north of the country this evening bringing showers, some heavy and at times merging to longer spells of rain across Ulster and North Connacht. Scattered showers will then push southwards and become widespread overnight. Lowest temperatures 9 to 11 degrees and the winds will back westerly for a time and ease a little.

Tuesday, it says, will see further sunshine and showers, some heavy initially but becoming drier and brighter again by afternoon. Highest temperatures 14 to 18 degrees in moderate north to northwest winds.

It’ll be rather cool again on Wednesday for the time of year with temperatures between just 14 and 17 or 18 degrees at best during the afternoon. It will, however, be mainly dry and bright with just well scattered showers, mostly in the west and north. Winds will be mainly light to moderate northwesterly still but will ease and back to the southwest later in the day.

It’ll be a cloudier day on Thursday with showers in the north at first, extending southwards during the day. The showers may be heavy or prolonged for a time in the north and northwest.
