Ireland is set for an unusually sunny and dry week as a mixed bag of conditions are expected to spread across the country, along with some scattered showers.
Met Eireann has predicted a mainly dry week. However, lingering fog will be seen in most areas as the day breaks.
The north and the west of the country will see the worst of the weather, with some heavy showers developing as the day continues.
Temperatures are expected to rise up and down as the week goes on, as some unusual air masses travel across Ireland.
A forecaster has said: “A bit of a temperature rollercoaster coming over the next 10 days on latest ECWMF charts.
“Some mild weather to cooler back to mild and then possibly very cool! Wait and see for now.”
