“The low-pressure system will clear eastwards away from Ireland later on Monday, with a northerly airflow re-establishing across Ireland,” Met Éireann forecaster Andrew Doran-Sherlock said.
“This will keep temperatures below average next week, around eight to 12 degrees Celsius and it’ll stay on the unsettled side too.”
