Dublin weather forecast: Cooler temperatures and rain expected today

Dublin is set to experience a significant drop in temperature today, with highs of only 11 to 13 degrees Celsius. Met Eireann has warned that while the day will start with some bright or sunny spells, it will be mostly cloudy with outbreaks of rain arriving through the afternoon and continuing into the evening, with some heavy bursts likely. Moderate to fresh easterly winds will ease later but mist and low cloud will occur more widely then too.

Tonight, there will be further outbreaks of rain in the capital, heaviest early on with mist and fog persisting in some areas too. Lowest temperatures will be between 8 to 10 degrees Celsius, in just light southerly or variable breezes.

However, tomorrow will bring some relief to Dubliners as sunny spells and scattered showers will develop in most areas of the city. It will be mild and humid with temperatures creeping back up to highs of 16 to 18 degrees Celsius, all in light southerly or variable breezes.

Looking ahead to the weekend, Met Eireann’s national outlook predicts that Saturday will bring a mix of cloud and sunny spells with widespread slow-moving showers, heaviest into the afternoon and evening with possible thundery downpours. The highest temperatures will generally range from 15 to 18 degrees Celsius, in light to moderate southerly winds. It will become drier early in the night under broken cloud with lowest temperatures of 6 to 9 degrees Celsius.

On Sunday, sunny spells and scattered light showers are expected during the morning and early afternoon, followed later by cloudier skies as rain and drizzle gradually extends countrywide, last to arrive to the east. The highest temperatures will range from 14 to 19 degrees Celsius, warmest in the east, in moderate south to southwest winds. Heavy rain will follow overnight, clearing into the Irish Sea before morning. Low cloud and mist too. Very mild with lowest temperatures of 10 to 13 degrees, in moderate south to southwest winds.

Monday will bring a day of sunny spells and scattered passing showers with a few heavy ones likely. The highest temperatures will be between 14 to 18 degrees Celsius, again best values away from Atlantic counties, in mostly moderate westerly winds.

Dubliners are advised to keep an eye on the weather forecast and plan accordingly for the weekend ahead.
