Today and Tomorrow's forecast
Monday 27 March
Sunny for the rest of the afternoon with temperatures ranging from up to 18 degrees in the west, to closer to 12 or 13 degrees at best along the east coast. Moderate easterly winds will be fresh and gusty along the south and southwest coasts.
It'll be dry early tonight, but turning misty, with the mist thickening into fog over the northern half of the country. Over Munster thickening cloud will bring outbreaks of rain, that rain edging northwards later. It'll be cold over Ulster early in the night, with temperatures down to 3 degrees, and there'll be a rural grass frost, but temperatures will rise overnight to be between 5 and 9 degrees by morning. Moderate to fresh easterly winds will become light to moderate southeast to east overnight.
Tuesday 28 March
There'll be sunny spells tomorrow, but overall the weather will be cloudy with outbreaks of rain or showers, turning heavy in places in the afternoon and evening. Highest temperatures 11 to 15 degrees, in light to moderate southeast breezes.
OUTLOOK: Pleasantly mild and humid for much of the week in a moderate, occasionally fresh southerly flow. Very mixed however as a steering low in the nearby Atlantic feeds up bands of sometimes heavy rain, longer drier spells occurring equally too though. Frost free by night.
TOMORROW NIGHT: Largely dry, but some scattered outbreaks of rain will push up again later in a southerly flow - hill and coastal fog too. Lowest temperatures 3 to 7 degrees Celsius, coolest across Ulster where it should remain mostly dry.
WEDNESDAY: Rather cloudy and breezy with scattered outbreaks of rain, some heavy bursts locally. Windows of mild sunshine occurring too though, especially across the central belt of the country. Highest temperatures of 12 to 16 degrees Celsius, in a freshening southerly wind.
THURSDAY: Another mild, humid and breezy day, with further scattered outbreaks of rain. Rain may however turn very heavy and persistent later with the risk of spot flooding. Highest temperatures 11 to 15/16 degrees Celsius, best values across the northern half of the country.
FRIDAY: Not quite as mild with afternoon highs of 10 to 14/15 degrees, best values for the north of Leinster. Another breezy day with scattered outbreaks of rain, most of it showing up across Atlantic counties, in a fresh south to southwest flow.
NEXT WEEKEND: Probably a bit fresher for Saturday with well scattered showers. Milder again on Sunday but with misty drizzle closer to the Atlantic.
