Starting the week on Monday it will be a bright but cold day with heavy showers.

Showers will be more frequent across the north and west.

Temperatures will be around 5 or 6C in blustery winds.

Tuesday is also set to be a cold windy day with widespread heavy showers and longer spells of rain in the west.

Highest temperatures on Tuesday drop to between 2 and 5C.

The cold and windy spell will continue into Wednesday with heavy rain and strong winds developing overnight as a winter storm passed across Ireland.
