MUCH OF THE country will experience sunny spells today but wetter conditions are en route for the coming week. 

The national forecast is unsettled for the first half of the week but early signs suggest a warm and sunny weekend could be in store next weekend. 

Weather conditions are “feeling more pleasant” than recent days, according to forecasters but by Tuesday rain will return for much of the country. 

“Mainly dry today with good spells of sunshine for the afternoon,” Met Éireann said, adding there will be “temperatures of 15C to 17C”.

“Feeling more pleasant than recently despite the relatively low temperatures as winds will be light.”

Later tonight it will remain “dry with clear spells” and “southerly winds generally light, freshening on the west coast towards dawn. Lowest temperatures of 5C to 9C, coolest in the east”.

In spite of a dry and bright start tomorrow, however, conditions are to turn increasingly worse over the coming days. 

“Patchy rain and drizzle will arrive on western and southern coasts during the late morning and very slowly edge its way eastwards, reaching the midlands by evening,” the forecaster said.
