Met Éireann say dense fog and rain will cover the country today

We're in for a dull day.

While it won't be as bad as it was over the last few days, it's looking like today is going to be damp and misty.

Met Éireann has predicted that dense fog will cover the country for most of the morning and showers of rain will come as go as they please.

The weather forecaster said: "A cloudy but very misty start. Dense fog and patchy rain affecting inland areas will clear to leave a mainly dry morning. A little hazy sunshine in the east for a while but rain will reach the west around midday.

"The rain will spread gradually east during the afternoon and evening, though not reaching Irish Sea coasts until nightfall. After a calm start southerly breezes will freshen. Highest temperatures 11 to 14 degrees."

Tonight, temperatures are looking to drop to around 4 degrees with patches of rain.

"Outbreaks of rain for a while overnight, but clearer mainly dry conditions will follow east to all areas later tonight. A few passing showers near west coasts before morning. Southerly winds veering southwest will slacken. Cool. Minimum temperatures 4 to 7 degrees. A few mist patches inland."
