Make the best of the sunshine today - because it's not going to last long.

After a brief spell of wall-to-wall sunshine in which the mercury nudged close to 18C in Valencia, Co Kerry, yesterday, unfortunately clouds will start forming today in the south of the country.

Light rain is expected in south Munster, which will extend to south Leinster by tomorrow.

But most areas will remain dry today, although it won't be as sunny as yesterday, according to Met Éireann forecaster David Rogers, who said: "It won't be terribly wet, but temperatures won't be as high as Wednesday. It will be more changeable."

It will remain cold at night - especially on Friday night, when clear skies will give way to temperatures hovering in the low single digits, he said.

Northerly winds will also keep temperatures brisk at the weekend, with highs of less than 10C, although there will be periods of sunshine in between showery outbreaks.
