The weather forecast for Ireland for Tuesday is for it to start off dull or cloudy with outbreaks of rain and drizzle in the northern half of the country but it will be mostly dry with some bright or sunny spells in the south and southwest. Later in the afternoon and evening a few spots of rain will affect parts of the east and northeast. It will be a warm and humid day with top temperatures of 19 to 24 degrees in light to moderate westerly breezes.

According to the latest weather forecast from Met Eireann, Wednesday will be a close humid day, with light south or southwest winds. Early drizzle in Leinster and Munster soon dying out, with some hazy sunshine developing in places. But rain, low cloud and mist will affect Atlantic coastal areas and also parts of Ulster. The trend will be for the rain to become more widespread across the country later in the afternoon and evening. Top temperatures 19 to 22 degrees, best in any decent sunny breaks, in mostly moderate south to southwest winds. Humid overnight with further drizzle, rain and mist in places.

But some sunny spells for most too - best in western coastal counties in the afternoon and evening. Moderate southwest or west winds and temperatures staying above normal, ranging 18 to 22 degrees.
