According to Met Eireann, the showers will die out on Tuesday night and under clear skies temperatures will fall to 4 or 5 degrees. 

Wednesday will be another rather cool day. It will start largely dry with good sunshine but in the afternoon showers will develop, some heavy and thundery. Highest temperatures on the low side for the time of year, expected to reach just 11 to 14 degrees in light northerly or variable breezes. Once again the showers will die out early in the night with a chilly night to follow.
