Keep the umbrellas close as the forecast for the rest of the week is for "wet, cold and changeable" weather.

This morning there will be persistent heavy rain over Leinster and Ulster. Those in Munster and Connacht aren't going to stay dry either, with the wet weather set to spread across the whole country as the day goes on.

Daytime temperatures will be 7 to 10C, while it will be a much colder, at -1 to 3C, overnight.

Tomorrow will start off much dryer, but that won't last for long with rain coming in from the Atlantic Seaboard. There will also be strong southeast winds. Temperatures will be roughly the same as today.

The rain will mostly disappear over the weekend, with just some coastal drizzle, but this will be replaced by colder weather and frost.

It may not encourage a day out at the shops - but it will be perfect weather to watch Netflix all day, guilt-free.

A spokesperson for Met Éireann said: "The weather is set to be wet, cold and changeable over the next few days. It will be quite wet until the weekend and then when it dries, there will be a good deal of frost.

"The rain is coming in from the Atlantic tomorrow and it will reach most areas."
