The thunderstorm will see some heavy downpours with the risk of hail and spot flooding and will last until 9pm on Sunday evening.

The counties expected to be hit by the storm are Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Westmeath, Wexford, Cavan, and Monaghan.

Meanwhile, all of Munster and Connacht are also expected to be hit.

The storms are expected to be heaviest and most frequent through the midlands and south bringing the risk of spot flooding and hazardous driving conditions at times.

The best of the dry and bright weather will be in the northwest and along parts of the east coast where showers will be more isolated.

Highest temperatures are expected to reach 13 to 16 degrees.

Showers will mostly die out early tonight, with dry and mostly clear weather extending from the north to the south through the early part of the night.

A few isolated showers are set to arrive onto the northern and western coasts later in the night, meanwhile, it will be "an unseasonably cold night" with temperatures plummeting 1 to 5 degrees.

Monday will remain dry and sunny in many areas with a few light showers near northern and western coasts.

Showers are likely to develop elsewhere later in the morning and some may turn heavy at times, while these showers will be scattered - the good news is, there will be plenty of sunny spells also, particularly later in the day. Highest temperatures will reach 11 to 14 degrees.
