The warning which was issued on Monday will remain in place in Cavan, Monaghan, Longford, Louth, Meath, Westmeath, Offaly, Leitrim, Roscommon, and Galway until 10pm. The warning will also remain in place in Northern Irish counties Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Tyrone, and Derry until 9pm on Monday night.

The national forecaster said that the heavy showers or thunderstorms may lead to localised flooding and hazardous driving conditions in Ireland, and may also cause flooding and travel disruption in a few places in the North.

The weather for much of the week is set to be "mixed and changeable" with showers or rain and some bright spells, meanwhile, temperatures will be similar to last week with an average in the mid-teens, reaching 20 to 21 degrees at times.

Tuesday will be a largely dry day for many with just a few light showers about, mainly in the west.

It will be a rather cloudy day overall, with the best of the sunny breaks occurring in morning hours or early afternoon and highest temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees.

Outbreaks of, occasionally heavy, rain will push eastwards over the country during the morning and early afternoon on Wednesday with brighter, clearer and sunnier conditions with just isolated showers developing in Atlantic counties by late morning.

However, the brighter conditions will gradually extend elsewhere through the rest of the day with temperatures reaching highs of 17 to 20 degrees.

Current indications suggest low pressure will track just north of Ireland on Thursday, making for a very blustery or windy day with sunny spells and heavy showers, especially in the west and northwest.

Maximum temperatures will range from 17 to 19 degrees.

Meanwhile, conditions will be still quite windy early on Friday, but with moderating westerly winds into the afternoon.

Sunny spells and scattered showers are expected with driest, brightest and mildest conditions in the southeast and highs 16 to 20 degrees.

Next weekend current indications suggest low pressure will dominate with showers or longer spells of rain to hit the country. Temperatures also look likely to remain around average yet again.
