A storm brewing in the Atlantic is likely to avoid Dublin this week after previously being forecast to batter the capital midweek.
Dublin weather forecast: Capital to avoid worst of storm but Met Eireann predict heavy rain and high winds
The weather front was expected to make its way in through the south of Ireland on Wednesday but the course has since changed.
Instead the damaging gusts will likely pass the country completely, but Met Eireann are still forecasting very heavy rain and high winds between Tuesday and Thursday.
A Met Eireann forecaster said: "There'll be sunny spells and isolated showers today. Afternoon temperatures will be between 6 and 9 degrees in mostly light east or southeast winds.
"Tomorrow, Tuesday, rain will spread quickly from the west, turning heavy with the risk of thunder for a time, before clearing to dry and sunny conditions for the afternoon.
"Highest temperatures will once again be between 7 and 10 degrees and strong southeast winds will veer southwest and ease with the clearing rain.
"On Tuesday night rain in the southwest will extend north and eastwards through the country. Temperatures will fall to between 2 and 5 degrees generally but will linger at 6 or 7 degrees in west Munster.
"Wednesday will be a wet and windy day. Rain will clear the west in the evening and will be heavy at times in the north and northwest.
"Temperatures will be 12 or 13 degrees in the afternoon and 5 to 7 degrees on Wednesday night. The strong southerly winds will veer southwesterly later. "Thursday will be drier but there'll still be showers around, mainly on southern coasts, turning to more persistent spells of rain at times in the west and north. Moderate southerly winds will become strong southwesterly."
