According to Met Éireann, there is a slight chance of an isolated shower today (Friday, May 7th, 2021).

Temperatures will reach between 10 to 14 degrees in light variable breezes during the day with night-time lows of 2 to 6 degrees.

Rain in the south will extend across the country, heavy at times. As a result, the national forecaster has warned of a risk of spot flooding, particularly along the south coast.

Rain in the north and east will gradually clear north-eastwards through the morning with sunny spells and scattered showers to follow from the south-west.
