A mixed bag weather wise for the coming week, but thankfully no extremes.
The next five to seven days will be cold but largely dry, with just the odd shower.
Cloud cover will start building up over the Dublin area on Tuesday, with persistent rain by Saturday. The overcast conditions will help to keep temperatures relatively mild, in double figures by Friday.
Further west, only light rain and temperatures hovering around 9C, with Friday being the coldest day, with lows of 2C predicted.
And to the south of the country, the thermometer will also hover around the 9-10C mark, with some persistent rain on Friday.
Fears of a lasting cold snap seem to have been unfounded, for the time being at least, though rumours of the chilling ‘Beast from the East’ wind heading for Ireland still persist.
