The winter weather is set to continue, with Met Éireann forecasting colder temperatures from next Tuesday.

While today and tomorrow it will be mainly dry for most of the country, it's set to get colder and wetter.

However, according to a Met Éireann forecaster it will not be extreme.

"At the moment, there's no indication of any severe cold weather in the next 10 days," he said.

"The overall picture is that we do expect it to get colder from Tuesday."

Today it will be largely dry with the exception of light showers in west Munster, Connacht and Ulster.

During the day, temperatures will reach seven to nine degrees, dropping to as low as -2 during the night.

Tomorrow will be mainly dry, with showers in Connacht and west Ulster in the early morning.

Flooding

Persistent rain is ex- pected to develop during the evening and reach the rest of the country at night.

According to Met Éireann, this month will be colder than average.

"We can see that with Friday night's forecast predicting widespread rain, which will be heavy at times leading to a possible risk of localised flooding," the forecaster said.

"Thankfully, the rain will clear from most places in the morning."
