The weather this week is set to be more than unpredictable

The forecast for this week doesn't look very promising.

Today remained mostly cloudy with patches of drizzle and the cool weather looks set to continue.

Tuesday will start off as damp and misty, with outbreaks of rain and drizzle affecting most parts.

Fog will settle on hills and coastal fog also before some sunny breaks in the afternoon in the areas of Munster and south Leinster.

Maximum temperatures will be in the mid-teens where the cloudy and wet conditions persist in the north and west, with temperatures in the high teens or the low 20s elsewhere.

Wednesday will start as cloudy in the east with rain here for a while.

Clearer and mainly dry conditions elsewhere will follow to all places with sunny spells. Then dry apart from isolated showers in the north. Becoming fresher with moderate westerly breezes.

Thursday will be mainly dry, with more settled weather to be established. The day will be rather cloudy, but dry with light winds. Temperatures will be in the mid to high teens.

Conditions are to improve on Friday as it will be a dry day countrywide with light variable winds.
