Weather forecast

It will be wet at first Tuesday morning over eastern counties, but the rain will clear quickly and it will brighten up.

Met Éireann has said sunny spells will develop in most areas, but there will be showers as well.

The showers will become quite widespread during the afternoon and a few will be heavy. It will remain quite windy, with blustery south to southwest winds, which will be stronger along the west coast.

It will be a mild day, with top temperatures of 13 to 16 degrees Celsius.
