Drizzle has been the order of the day so far this winter.
And there’s more soggy weather in store for Cork today and tomorrow, with a sharp drop in temperature forecast on Wednesday.
While this morning will be dry in Munster with patches of mist and fog, which will gradually clear, Met Éireann says rain and drizzle “will move southwards over the region early this afternoon.”
Highest temperatures will stay between 9 and 11 degrees.
