The forecaster said there will be very strong and gusty west to southwest winds and spells of heavy rain.

The showers are to become more isolated as the afternoon progresses. 

It will be another cold night tonight with frosty and icy patches developing as temperatures drop as low as -2 degrees. 

After a mainly dry start to the night with clear spells and isolated showers, cloud is due to thicken from the southwest overnight with outbreaks of rain developing in Munster later.

However, outbreaks of rain in Munster are due to gradually spread northeastwards across the country through the day, turning heavy at times. It’s expected to become drier for a time in the south and southwest towards evening. 

Tomorrow night is forecast to be windy, especially over the western half of the country, with scattered outbreaks of rain.

Drier conditions and clear spells are expected to slowly spread from the southwest towards Tuesday morning.

Temperatures are forecast to drop as low as -1 degree tomorrow night. 

Met Éireann has said conditions will remain unsettled throughout next week.
