According to Met Éireann, it will be cloudy but mainly dry on Monday and Tuesday, with temperatures in the low teens, although rain will start to fall and become persistent on Tuesday night. This easterly component to the breeze should help keep high temperatures from really taking off but we should still see the numbers climb to above normal levels.

A few spotty showers will be possible by late afternoon ahead of the approaching cold front.

With moisture flowing into the region from the Gulf of Mexico Monday night into Tuesday, the region could seethe potential for a brief period of moderate to heavy rainfall Tuesday night into Wednesday. The chances of rain inland are lower.

THERE'S GOING TO be no break in the cold weather over the coming days with sleet and snow forecast later this week. The good news is the ground temperatures are much too warm for anything to stick around. Highest temperatures of just 3 to 6 degrees with moderate to fresh north to northwest winds. Rain amounts of around one-half inch are likely.

Met Éireann says the likelihood of snow will increase in the evening and night as temperatures drop to -2 degrees.
