RTE got a little confused with their weather presenters this evening and viewers were quick to point out the funny blunder.

Experienced meteorologist Gerry Murphy was taking to our screens this evening to deliver the week's European Forecast.

However viewers were left confused when the caption stated Nuala Carey.

Weather forecast fans were quick to take to Twitter where they poked some fun at both Nuala and Gerry.

The blooper did brighten up watchers as further gloomy weather is expected this week.

Earlier Met Éireann forecaster John Eagleton gave Independent.ie the breakdown for the coming days.

“It will be a bit wet, a bit windy and a bit unsettled,” he said.

Heavy showers will continue to occur this afternoon and this evening will see mainly cool and blustery conditions, with highest temperatures of around around 16 degrees.

Tonight, showers will become confined to more western counties, with long clear spells developing elsewhere.

“Tomorrow will be wet and windy, with potential for very strong winds,” he said.

Wednesday will be cool, with a mix of sunny spells and showers.  Many of these showers will be heavy, some possibly consisting of hail and there is a risk of scattered thunderstorms, especially in the north and west.

Thursday will be another cool and breezy day, with sunny spells and scattered showers, some of them heavy.

Temperatures for the week will range between 12 and 16 degrees.
