|weather chart for today, not Good!|
from Met Eireann;
The persistent and often heavy rain will continue today over much of the country, with the risk of some further localised flooding. However, in the southwest, the rain will be more showery, with some good dry and bright spells. Elsewhere, the rain will be persistent and heavy, but the rain will gradually turn lighter and more intermittent towards evening time. A rather windy day as well with fresh to strong and gusty west to northwest winds. Highest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees.
The rain will ease further early tonight and later in the night it will be mainly dry. Westerly winds will be fresh to strong at first, but wind will moderate later in the night and some mist or fog might form. Lowest temperatures of 8 to 10 degrees.
