MET ÉIREANN HAS said that we’re set for a very wet, windy week as rain sweeps in from the Atlantic.

This morning’s misty and damp conditions will give way to outbreaks of sometimes heavy rain as the day goes on.

There will even be the risk of thundery downpours in eastern and southern counties this afternoon. Highest temperatures today will range between 16 and 20 degrees.

Tomorrow will be bright and fresh, Met Éireann forecast, but scattered showers will persist until the evening.

Wednesday will be wet and windy, with some “heavy bursts forecast”, as well as gale force winds in coastal areas.

Looking further ahead, rain will continue to sweep in from the West as the week goes on, with temperatures remaining in the high teens.

Met Éireann said: “Mobile Atlantic conditions are expected to continue to dominate, with temperatures likely to remain slightly below the seasonal average”.
