THE sun will be out for the All Ireland football final, but you're advised to enjoy it as it's not here to stay.

“We will see a little bit of mist and fog in the morning, but that will soon clear to give us a bright day with sunny spells,” Met Éireann forecaster Liz Gavin told on Sunday.

“There is a small risk of a light shower in the east, but most areas will hold dry.

“Highest temperatures of 14 to 16 degrees with mostly light north to northeast breezes.”

Tomorrow will be mainly dry with patches of mist and fog during the morning.

This will clear giving way to sunny spells. Into the afternoon we will see some cloud forming and there may be a little patchy rain or drizzle towards evening. The highest temperatures will reach 17 degrees with light northwest breezes.

Tuesday will be mild and mostly cloudy. There'll be a fair amount of dry weather, but some patchy rain or drizzle at times. Highest temperatures will reach 15 to 18 degrees with light to moderate southerly breezes.

But Tuesday night is when the weather will start to shift - with rain will developing in the west., Ms Gavin said. 

"It will become more persistent during the night and will spread across the country overnight," she added.

Wednesday will be a humid, cloudy and wet day with rain in all areas. The highest temperatures will be 15 to 19 degrees with moderate southerly winds.

Thursday morning will begin wet in most places with further rain coming in the afternoon. The rain will gradually clear eastwards with sunny spells and some showers following from the west. There will be a drop in temperature with highest temperatures of 13 to 16 degrees.

Friday will start off dry with some sunshine. Some patchy rain or drizzle will spread eastwards later. Highest temperatures will be between 13 and 17 degrees.
