This week will see unsettled and very mild, humid weather, according to Met Eireann, with some windy wet spells at times.

From Wednesday on it says that the weather will be breezy and windy in places, but dry with some hazy sunny breaks during the morning in the east and north, but heavy rain in the southwest will gradually spread northeastwards, but probably not reach into Ulster and north Leinster until well into the evening. Afternoon temperatures of 12 to 14 degrees C are expected.

Rain will turn more showery in the southwest later on Wednesday and in all areas overnight.

By Thursday, the weather will still be mild, but breezy with fresh southerly winds. Many places will be bright with just scattered showers, but cloudier with more persistent rain will develop in coastal areas of the southwest and south. Highs of 14 to 16 degrees C.

Friday though will be windy with fresh to strong southerly winds bringing rain especially to southwestern, western and northwestern areas with drier conditions elsewhere with some bright spells and afternoon temperatures in the mid teens.

This weekend will see very mild weather, but there will be some windy and wet periods, risk of some heavy rainfall at times, especially in the south and southeast.
