THIS WILL BE a mixed week of weather, where it’s to start off dry and sunny, but rain is expected by polling day on Friday.

According to Met Éireann, today will be dry and sunny in most counties, but rain is expected in Co Donegal and other areas in the northwest. These showers will become more heavy and widespread as the day goes on.

Expect maximum temperatures of 12 to 16 degrees generally, but 17 degrees in parts of Munster. Winds today will be light, and mainly northerly.

Thursday will bring showers or longer spells of rain with a rainbelt stalling over the country. Some northern parts may stay drier and it may also brighten in the southwest later. Highest temperatures will be between 15 to 17 degrees with light variable winds.

Friday looks like it will be a drier day for most places, with patchy rain dying out and a few brighter spells developing in light to moderate northerly winds.

Although it’s early days still, the weekend looks unsettled and not that warm, with the nights noticeably cold.
