Some of these showers are likely to turn heavy and persistent around north Munster and south Leinster, with minimum temperatures of 8 to 10 degrees.

Well drained and moderately drained soils are expected to remain trafficable over the coming days, while poorly drained soils are saturated or waterlogged and are set to remain so over the coming days.


Tomorrow, Tuesday, is forecast to be a mild, windy day with further rain, drizzle and fog in places.

Heavy rain is expected in parts of the west and north in the afternoon or evening, as temperatures reach highs of 10 to 14 degrees in strengthening southwesterly winds.

Heavy rain forecast in the west and north is set to ease overnight, with cloudy and patchy light rain or drizzle likely elsewhere.

It is set to be coldest in the north, as temperatures range from 4 to 8 degrees.


On Wednesday, the northern half of the country is set to be cooler than of late, but mild conditions are likely to continue further south.

It is forecast to be another mostly cloudy day across the country with outbreaks of rain set to affect Atlantic coasts at first, spreading elsewhere in the afternoon and evening with some heavy falls.

Southern parts of Munster and Leinster are set to enjoy drier conditions. Afternoon temperatures are set to range from 6 to 8 degrees across the northern half of the country, rising to between 9 to 12 degrees in the south.

Wet and windy conditions are expected for most areas on Wednesday night with strong and gusty southwest winds veering northwesterly overnight with rain turning to heavy showers.


Sunny spells and passing showers, with some turning heavy with hail, are forecast for Thursday.
