It’s set to be cloudy throughout the day with persistent or heavy rains in areas.

There will be some drier intervals in the east for a time this afternoon, Met Éireann has said, with highest temperatures of 10 to 14 degrees expected. 

Tonight will be wet but drier weather will likely develop in the west and southwest, gradually extending eastwards. 

Rain will continue overnight in Leinster and Ulster, however, but it will become more patchy. Mist and fog will also develop in many areas with lowest temperatures of 3 to 7 degrees forecast. 

Tomorrow will start dry but in the early afternoon will bring rain in the west which will gradually spread eastwards.
