Mostly cloudy to begin today, with scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle, persistent in the west and northwest, with a few heavy bursts, says Met Eireann. A clearance to mainly dry conditions arriving in the west before midday will extend countrywide this afternoon, with good sunny spells developing in most places by evening. Top temperatures 15 to 20 degrees, warmest in the east and south. Mostly moderate southwest winds, fresh to strong for a time near Munster and Leinster coasts, will veer northwest with the clearance.
