The recent spell of sunny weather has suddenly ended, with unseasonably wet and windy weather settling in for the week.
Met Eireann has issued an advisory for all counties in Ireland today, and further warnings are likely.
The summer sun has been replaced with wind and heavy outbreaks of rain nationwide. Temperatures are set to remain warm, hovering around 20C in the daytime and in the low teens at night.
“Windy weather on Thursday and Friday may result in unsafe conditions over high ground, lakes and sea areas,” said the forecaster.
The advisory is in place from 12noon Monday until 6pm Saturday.
Meanwhile, a Status Yellow rain alert is in place for counties in Munster, as well as Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Wexford, Wicklow, Offaly and Galway.
