Meanwhile, Met Éireann’s current national forecast for Sunday night states:

“Any lingering rain will clear from the north early in the night. It will be drier for a time with clear spells and isolated showers. However, rain will spread from the southwest again overnight, with some heavy downpours possible. Lowest temperatures of 5 to 9 degrees, but turning milder with the rain and freshening southeasterly winds too, strong in the west and southwest by morning.”

As for Monday, the forecast outlines:

“A wet and windy start to the day with widespread rain, heavy at times. Rain will clear to the north through the morning and afternoon, followed by sunny spells and showers, most frequent and heaviest over the western half of the country. Fresh to strong southeasterly winds will veer westerly and ease later. Highest temperatures of 10 to 13 degrees.”

The Irish meteorological service added in its national outlook for next week: “Unsettled with a spell of heavy rain on Monday, followed by frequent blustery showers for the rest of the week.”
