IRELAND WEATHER: Weather forecast for Ireland for the coming days from Met Eireann

The weather forecast for Ireland for the coming days from Met Eireann is for the weather to be generally unsettled with some very wet and windy weather at times. Becoming very mild for a time midweek.

Ireland is set to be hit with some very wet weather on Sunday according to the latest Met Eireann weather forecast for Ireland. 

Met Eireann has issued a Status Yellow Rainfall Warning for seven counties with the south east set to see the worst of the rain. 

According to Met Eireann, Sunday will start wet in many parts, with the risk of spot flooding in the south and southeast where the rain may be thundery. The rain will ease off through the afternoon as brighter spells and showers follow into the west and southwest. However, cloud and outbreaks of rain will linger in parts of the north and east, and some sleet may fall over higher parts of Ulster in the evening. Highs of 5 to 9 degrees, cooler at times in the afternoon, as light to moderate variable winds become northwesterly and increase moderate and gusty.

According to Met Eireann, any residual rain will gradually clear eastwards leaving a night of clear spells and scattered showers. The showers will mainly be mostly confined to northern and Atlantic coasts, with some turning wintry especially over higher ground. Lowest temperatures of 0 to 4 degrees, with some frost and icy patches possible. Westerly winds veer north to northwest and increase moderate to fresh by morning.

According to the latest Met Eireann weather forecast, a good deal of dry weather is expected on Monday along with good sunny spells. Scattered showers will still occur, mainly in the north and northwest but they will ease through the afternoon. Chilly with highest temperatures of just 5 to 9 degrees, coolest in Ulster, with an added wind chill factor in moderate to fresh northwest winds, but the winds will ease light to moderate as they back southwesterly by evening.

According to Met Eireann, there will be a cold to start to Monday night, especially in the north and east with a touch of frost possible. Lowest temperatures of 0 to 6 degrees but temperatures will pick up as cloud along with outbreaks of rain spread from the west, becoming widespread and heavy at times with possible spot flooding. There may be some falls of sleet over higher ground in the northeast at first. Southwest winds will increase moderate to fresh as well.

According to the latest Met Eireann weather forecast, Tuesday will be a largely wet day with spells of rain and showers, heavy at times with a risk of localised flooding, especially in the south. Highest temperatures ranging from 6 degrees in the north to 10 degrees in the south in moderate to fresh westerly winds, easing later.

Becoming very mild, wet and breezy on Tuesday night with heavy rain at times as winds back southwesterly and freshen. Lowest temperatures early in the night of 2 to 7 degrees generally but temperatures will increase to 8 to 12 degrees by morning.

According to Met Eireann, Wednesday morning will be very mild and windy with the rain clearing to squally showers. Becoming very windy for a time as westerly winds increase strong to near gale force and gusty, with gales or strong gales on exposed coasts. There will be some hail in the showers, and they will turn wintry in the northwest towards evening, especially over higher ground. Highs of 11 to 15 degrees, but turning cooler through the late afternoon and evening as showers ease.
