Cloudy, wet and breezy weather on the way

Well it's a crisp and sunny day in Mullingar and surrounding areas this morning.

Highest temperatures will reach between 12 to 15 degrees in light to moderate breezes throughout the rest of the day.

It will however be a vastly different picture tomorrow, Monday.

East to southeast winds will drive bands of rain, heavy at times, across the Midlands.

Low pressure will dominate the rest of the week, bringing spells of wet and sometimes windy weather.

Monday night will see widespread and persistent rain early on Monday night, with further heavy falls maintaining the risk of river and surface flooding.

Fresh to strong southerly winds will affect southern and eastern coastal areas.

Low pressure is currently forecast to move northeastwards over Ireland during Tuesday, causing strong southerly winds in the south and east.

Heavy and persistent rain in northern areas on Tuesday morning is expected to clear away to the north during the morning, but through the rest of the day further outbreaks of heavy rain are forecast to move northeastwards across the country as the low pressure system tracks over Ireland.

Highest temperatures of 13 to 15 degrees.

Drier conditions will then develop on Tuesday night with temperatures decreasing to between 7 and 10 degrees.

Winds will ease in most areas, but strong northerly winds will develop along western and northern coasts.
