THE WEATHER FORECAST today is a mixed bag, with rain and showers replacing the fine weather most areas have been experiencing this weekend before high pressure returns bringing dry and settled conditions next week. 

Met Éireann said today will be mainly dry and bright with cloud and oubtreaks of rain moving up from the south to affect parts of Munster and south Leinster this afternoon. 

Most areas will stay dry with sunny spells further north and top temperatures of 13 to 18 degrees with Connacht enjoying the warmest weather. Moderate breezes will keep temperatures cooler near eastern and southern coasts.

It’ll be mostly cloudy on Saturday with scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle mainly in the east and south. 

It’ll also be cooler than recent days with highest temperatures of 11 degrees in the eastern half of the country and 14 in the west.

Sunday will likely bring a mix of sunny spells and scattered showers, Met Éireann said.

Some of these showers will be heavy, with the odd rumble of thunder possible. 

Temperatures will be higher from Monday as dry and sunny conditions return with high pressure becoming dominant again.
