It certainly won't be warm around Ireland for the next few days, but we can look forward to some light winds and relatively dry days, forecasters have predicted.

According to Accuweather, Dublin will start clouding up on Tuesday, with persistent rain by Saturday - but at least the cloud cover should help see highest temperatures climb to double figures by Friday.

Wrap up warm though - those lows of 2°C look ominous.

Metrogroup is a little more optimistic, predicting "the chance of the odd shower" on Tuesday for Leinster, with just "light rain likely to linger" on Thursday.

Further west in Galway, temperatures won't quite hit those 11°C highs, hovering around the 9°C mark. The good news is that it shouldn't be as cold, with only Friday predicted to drop to at 2°C.

Taking a longer-term view, fears of another cold snap seem to be unfounded, as far as November of December are concerned at least, with Accuweather predicting that daytime lows will never even reach the 0°C mark.

Of course, January and February could bring colder conditions, with warnings of 'The Beast from the East' on the horizon.
