Monday night will be mostly cloudy with a little light rain, drizzle and mist extending eastwards, but clearing from most places later in the night.

However; rain will push into western parts later in the afternoon and will spread eastwards through the evening. The rain will be heavy at times in the evening, especially in parts of the west and northwest. Becoming windy too through the day with southerly winds increasing fresh to strong and gusty with gales in some western and northwestern coastal areas. Highest temperatures of 8 to 11 degrees.

Wet and rather windy at first on Tuesday night, with rain heavy for a time, but the rain will mostly clear southeastwards overnight, with a few showers following into northwestern parts.
