Stock up on the raingear and thermals for the rest of the week.

The sunshine we've enjoyed during the last two days is temporary - with rain and frosty conditions set to return for the rest of the week.

Scattered showers are expected to hit Dublin and the east coast later today, followed by even more widespread rain on Friday, according to Met Eireann.

Forecaster, Dave Rogers, told the Herald that conditions are "typical" for this time of the year, but temperatures are still a bit below what should be expected.

"It'll be dry in a lot of places, but showers will break out too," Mr Rogers said.

"There'll probably be some more widespread showers tomorrow, before it gets a lot colder later on in the day.

"It'll be a little bit showery on Saturday and will start to get a bit frosty as we move into the night," he added.

While conditions look set to be drier from next week onwards, the weather won't be worthy of getting out shorts and shades, according to Mr Rogers.

"There will be dryer weather next week, but it won't be particularly warm and there's no guarantee that it'll be sunny either," he said.

However, the heavy rainfall and storms that caused havoc, including major flooding in parts of the country last week, is not anticipated to return over the coming days.
