Today

Cool, mostly sunny and dry in many places to begin Thursday, but showers - mainly in Atlantic coastal counties at first - will spread eastwards this afternoon and evening.

Some of the showers will be locally heavy and prolonged, with a risk of thunder.

Highs of 15 to 18 degrees in light northwesterly breezes.

Tonight

Becoming largely dry tonight, apart from the odd light shower along the Connacht and Ulster coasts, with long clear periods developing.

Lowest temperatures of 7 to 9 degrees Celsius in mainly light northwest or variable breezes, with a few mist and fog patches developing around dawn.
