Staying mild overnight with lowest tempertuares around 13 or 14 degrees in light to moderate southwest to southerly winds,"said forecasters.

Friday will be a largely dry day under the influence of high pressure from the south. There will be some bright or sunny spells breaking through but in the west and north it will be somewhat duller with patchy drizzle near Atlantic coasts and a few spots of rain near Connacht coasts later as a frontal trough edges closer to Ireland.
