Met Éireann have withdrawn national weather warnings as conditions are predicted to improve in the week ahead.

The yellow wind warnings were withdrawn as scheduled on Sunday afternoon as weather conditions eased across the country.

A Met Éireann forecaster has said that we're in for a "very mixed week" but "generally moderate conditions" are expected.

"It will be dry in northern and eastern parts of the country on Monday morning but wet elsewhere," the forecaster told independent.ie.

"Munster and Connacht will dry out during the afternoon but persistent rain will affect parts of Ulster and Leinster."

Strong and gusty northwest winds along the southwest coast are expected through the morning but winds will be moderate elsewhere.

Top temperatures will be as low as 6 to 9 degrees, cooler than average for this time of year.

Tuesday will start off dry but rain is predicted to spread across the country by early afternoon.

Wednesday will start of fresh with the sun making an appearance.

Mid-week temperatures will improve with highs of 11 or 12 degrees.
