Today

Locally heavy and persistent rain across the east at first today with spot flooding.

Drier and brighter elsewhere with just well scattered showers - mainly across the northwest.

Good sunshine will gradually extend to most parts from the west - though possibly staying dull along the very east of Leinster.

A blustery day, in fresh to strong and gusty northerly winds. Feeling cool too, with maxima of 6 to 9 degrees Celsius, best values for southern counties.

Tonight

Very cold tonight with calm and clear conditions. Frosty with the risk of ice patches.

Minima will widely fall back to range -4 to -1 degrees Celsius.
