The rest of the day will bring a mix of cloud, sunny intervals and just a few showers in the west and north-west. Highest temperatures will range from 7º to 11º in moderate to fresh westerly breezes.

Outbreaks of rain will reach south-west Munster this evening and will spread quickly north-east across the country overnight.

The rain is likely to be heaviest and most persistent in the west and north-west – but, rather patchy elsewhere.

A misty night with minimum temperatures of 4º to 7º in northern counties is expected; but, temperatures may rise to between 8º and 10º in all areas later in the night.

Conditions for both spraying and drying will be poor all week on account of the wet and windy weather forecast, Met Eireann added.
