Met Eireann Ireland, weather forecast expert warns low pressure system will bring major change

Ireland will see a big change in the weather as a low pressure system is expected to hit parts of the island.

The low pressure will overtake northern Ireland bringing with it outbreaks of rain and drizzle across the country.

But there is good news as the high pressure system will be back on after the rain has passed, Weather Alerts Ireland has confirmed.

Scattered frost and fog will be clear today leaving a largely dry day with sunny spells.

But clouds from the northwest will bring outbreaks of rain and drizzle developing in the west and northwest during the afternoon, spreading farther southeast in the evening.

It will be a windy day with the highest temperatures of 8-11 degrees.

Tonight will be cloudy and mild with periods of rain and drizzle. But drier and clearer conditions will spread from the northwest.

Temperatures will reach lows of 3 to 7 degrees.

Tomorrow will start cloudy with scattered light rain and drizzle in southern areas, but drier and brighter conditions elsewhere will become widespread throughout the morning.

It will be a mostly dry and bright day with sunny spells and just isolated showers with highs of 8-11 degrees.
