Today

Wet and windy at first, with heavy rain, in fresh to strong and gusty southeasterly winds. But a clearance to brighter conditions, with sunny spells and showers, soon in the southwest, will extend to the rest of the country by mid to late afternoon. Many of the showers will be heavy and possibly thundery too over Munster and west Connacht, but should be lighter and more scattered elsewhere.

Winds will veer south to southwesterly in the clearance and decrease moderate to fresh. Top temperatures of 7 to 11 C.

Tonight

Misty and mostly cloudy tonight with widespread showers. Some of these heavy with a risk of thunder. Some fog in places also.

Lowest temperatures 2 to 6 C.

Rainfall warning for Cork and Kerry (status yellow)

Rainfall totals of 25 to 40 mm in 24 hours from midnight on Sunday (due to a band of persistent rain followed by scattered heavy showers) highest values over mountains in the west. Valid until 23.59.
