Today

A dull damp or wet start today as overnight rain extends countrywide, turning heavy and persistent in many areas through the day, bringing a risk of spot flooding.

It will dry up across Munster and west Connacht later in the afternoon or evening however, with some brighter periods developing.

Cooler than recent days, with highest temperatures of 14 to 16 degrees Celsius.

Rather windy at first too, with fresh and gusty south-easterly winds which will later veer southwest and moderate.

Tonight

Lingering rain will clear northern and eastern parts early tonight, and it will become mostly dry but with mist and fog patches.

Turning cool with lowest temperatures ranging 6 to 10 degrees Celsius, in light southwest breezes.
