Dublin or Mayo fans may find themselves singing in the rain this evening as Met Eireann forecasts prolonged showers and overcast skies for the All Ireland final.

However, temperatures are set to drop this evening, with a risk of frost overnight.

Possible changes of bright or sunny spells will occur during the day, but scattered showers will continue, dying out later on, according to Met Eireann.

"Unfortunately, football fans are in a bad place at the moment because of the ongoing rain, but there is still a chance that the wet weather could clear up, said Met Eireann's Harm Luijkx.

"There will be dry spells later on today, but for the time being it is still dull and miserable out. Tonight, is expected to be much colder than the previous few days and weeks with chances of frost and mist throughout the country."

Tonight will be dry, with clear spells developing, but very cold, with even a risk of ground frost. Mist and fog patches are also predicted, with little or no wind and minimum temperatures 3 or 4 Celsius.

Sunday will be drier, with sunny spells, but clouds will increase later in the day. Winds will be mostly light to moderate southeasterly, but they'll freshen by nightfall.
