Met Eireann Ireland weather forecast shows big temperature swing but break from rain coming

By Dublin Live Weather

A big temperature drop is starting today in Dublin - but it should be accompanied by a break from the rain.

The skies will clear up this Sunday morning over the capital as Dubliners wake up to clearer skies - but there's a noticeable chill in the air once again.

Highest temperatures today should get as high as 13-15C, a noticeable drop on the last few days of temperature increase.

And we will really be feeling the chill tonight, with lows of about 5C expected on a dry but potentially foggy night.

That temperature drop will persist into the rest of the upcoming week, but there hopefully won't be any unsettled patches of rain to interrupt it.

Here is that forecast for the week:

Monday: It will be a mostly dry day with some sunny spells after any morning mist and fog clears. Highest temperatures of 14 or 15 degrees in a light west to northwest or variable breeze.

Monday Night: Patchy light rain and drizzle will affect Ulster but it will be dry further south with clear spells. Lowest temperatures of 4 to 9 degrees, coolest in the south. Mist and fog will once again develop in light west to northwesterly or variable breezes.

Tuesday: Most areas will stay dry on Tuesday with sunny spells but there will be more cloud over the north and northeast bringing a few well scattered light showers. Highest temperatures of 13 to 15 degrees in a light northwesterly or variable breeze.

Tuesday night: Dry, apart from a little drizzle in the far north. Some mist and fog patches forming which will be dense in places. Lows of 4 to 9 degrees.

Wednesday: Early mist and fog will clear to give a mix of cloud and some bright or sunny spells. Dry for much of the country with just passing showers along northern and northwestern coasts. Highest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees in light west to southwest breezes.

Thursday: Dry, apart from a few scattered light showers. On Thursday night some patchy rain is likely, mostly affecting northern areas. This should die out on Friday with some brighter spells developing after a dull start.
