Looks like more unsettled weather in on the cards.

Met Éireann has said that more sunshine is on the cards next week until an “Atlantic system” will hit the country bringing with it some heavy showers and unsetlled weather.

The weather experts have said that there will be some dry and bright spells with scattered showers up until midweek.

However, current indications suggest that it will turn more unsettled towards the end of the week with a spell of rain moving in from the Atlantic.

On Monday some mild showery rain will continue in Munster and south Leinster, while it will be a drier start elsewhere, with isolated showers and some bright spells. Highest temperatures will reach between 16 to 20 degrees.

Showery rain will die out on Tuesday morning but further scattered showers will develop through the day with some sunny spells breaking through also. Highest temperatures will hit 17 to 20 degrees.

It will be a slightly fresher day on Wednesday with sunny spells and well scattered light showers. Highest temperatures will remain between 15 to 19 degrees.

Many eastern areas will be dry for much of Thursday, however, rain will spread over the western half of the country from the Atlantic through the day before becoming more widespread and heavy on Thursday night.

Highest temperatures will be between 16 to 19 degrees.

Current indications suggest that it will remain unsettled on Friday with continued rain before turning more showery for the weekend, bringing some drier and brighter spells again.
