TONIGHT the rainfall will begin to fragment to scattered showers across the south with partial clearing spreading in from the north, with winds turning northerly 30-50 km/hr. Lows about 10 C for most, 12 C near south coast.

SUNDAY will be cloudy with sunny intervals, still a few lingering showers in south Leinster mostly, and moderate northwest winds. Highs will be 18 to 20 C.

MONDAY will be partly cloudy with isolated showers, lows near 9 C and highs near 19 C.

TUESDAY to THURSDAY are looking generally rather dry apart from some coastal drizzle in Connacht and west Ulster, but rather cloudy most of the time. There could be some more generous sunny breaks in Leinster and east Munster. Highs through mid-week will remain near seasonal averages (19-21 C) with lows around 10-12 C.

FRIDAY and SATURDAY are now looking a bit more unsettled, with cloud, a few showers, and muggy conditions, highs near 20 C -- the warm and dry spell expected seems to be waiting for one more disturbance to come and go before perhaps taking over for the period SUNDAY 22nd to TUESDAY 24th. The temperature could rise a few degrees then if sunshine takes over.
