With a weather warning in place this weekend for three counties, the conditions have been fairly erratic and this trend looks set to continue into next week.

On a positive note, Met Eireann has said that temperatures will go as high as 18 degrees in some areas. However, on the negative side of things, persistent rain and frost are also possible in other areas.

Here’s what’s in store over the coming days…


The mild and windy conditions are set to continue with further scattered outbreaks of rain or drizzle.

This rainfall will be heavy in the northwest while mist or fog will develop over higher ground.

Monday morning and afternoon

A cloudy start to the day is expected with patchy rain, drizzle and mist arriving.

Heavier rainfall is expected in the far northwest for a period. As the afternoon develops, rain will clear away to the north with much of the country becoming dry.

It will continue generally cloudy but some sunny spells will occur, especially in the east.

Monday evening

It’s shaping up to be cloudy and dry, apart from a little drizzle in parts of the southwest, west and northwest.

Souther counties can expect to see some mild mist too with fog and some low cloud also.

Tuesday morning and afternoon

The mist and fog will remain in Munster and Leinster but it’s expected to clear as the morning develops.

Elsewhere, it’s going to be dry in most places with some pleasant spells of sunshine, best of which in Munster and Leinster.

Cloudier further to the north and west with a little patchy drizzle and mist on coasts. More persistent outbreaks of rain will develop on northwest coasts through the afternoon.

The mercury is set to range between 14 to 18 degrees, a degree or two cooler in the west and northwest.

Tuesday night

Cloud and outbreaks of rain and drizzle will move southwards across Ulster and Connacht, remaining largely dry across Munster and Leinster but becoming cloudier overnight.

Conditions are expected to turn less mild through midweek with the weather becoming drier as pressure builds.

Wednesday morning and afternoon

A cloudy start to the day with outbreaks of rain and drizzle is expected, although the rain may be persistent in some areas throughout the day.

The temperature is set to take a drastic drop though with the mercury ranging from 8 to 12 degrees.

Wednesday night

Cloudy with outbreaks of rain and drizzle, gradually easing with dry spells developing with some clear spells.

Thursday morning and afternoon

Once again, it’s set to be cloudy with some rain and drizzle, clearing through the day to give a mainly dry day across the country with plenty of sunshine.

Thursday night

Dry and cold with clear skies. However, it’s shaping up to be chilly with the lowest temperatures of 1 to 5 degrees, coldest in the north with some frost possible.

Friday morning and afternoon

Good Friday is shaping up to be a dry and sunny day for most. However, it will become a little cloudier in northern parts later on.

Easter weekend and beyond

This period of high pressure will continue to dominate for Saturday bringing a mostly dry day with a mix of cloud and sunshine

The high pressure will then start to decline to the southwest, so turning more unsettled and turning colder over Easter, with some rain moving down from the north, followed by showers, some wintry.

In terms of the drastically changing weather patterns, renowned weather expert Alan O’Reilly of Carlow Weather has said: “Latest GFS charts are a little mad really. Forecasting a high of 17c for this Tuesday the 30th. Then only a high of 4c on Tuesday the 6th of April.

“How cold could it get? Possibly a hard frost and down to as low as -5c. Long long way off yet in weather forecasting terms but one for fruit growers and gardeners to keep a close eye on. Oh and also maybe golfers!”
