Tomorrow morning will be mainly dry for much of the country.

There will be isolated showers that will become more frequent and widespread in the afternoon, and will be most frequent and heaviest in Leinster.

By Thursday, showers will be most frequent in Munster and south Leinster with light northerly winds becoming variable in direction. 

There’ll be showers in Ulster on Friday but elsewhere will be mainly dry as winds become light to moderate westerly and sunshine spreads from the west.
