Tomorrow will be largely dry and clear, although clouds will bring some showers to the north and the west.
Met Éireann have said that Wednesday will, again, be cloudy, with outbreaks of rain moving westwards in the morning.
Thursday, however, is expected to be a little sunnier and dryer in the eastern half of the country, though the west will be cloudier, with outbreaks of rain along the coastal regions.
Looking ahead to Friday and the weekend, the rain is expected to clear eastwards with sunny spells and some scattered showers predicted. Maximum temperatures will remain around the 15-19 degree mark.
