It’s been a mild start to the year.
And the pleasant weather is set to continue this week as Met Éireann predicts a largely dry and bright day to finish out January.
According to the national forecaster, it will turn cloudier by Monday afternoon, but you can leave your umbrella at home. No need for the thermals yet either; highest afternoon temperatures will hit around seven or eight degrees.
Monday night will be generally cloudy “with light rain mainly affecting the north and northwest.”
“Drier elsewhere with just scattered patches of drizzle. Lowest temperatures of 4 to 8 degrees in fresh to strong west to northwest winds.” said a Met Éireann spokesperson.
Largely dry with some bright spells⛅️ to start on Monday, but turning cloudier by afternoon with patchy light rain/drizzle🌧️ spreading from the northwest.
However, many southern and southwestern areas will stay dry.

The temperature will rise once again as February begins on Tuesday.
Forecasters predict it will be “blustery and dull for most with low cloud, mist and some patchy drizzle” with highest temperatures of 10 to 12 degrees.
Cloud and drizzle are the order of the day for Wednesday too, with rain extending across the country by the evening.
