Milder elsewhere, with values of 6 to 12 Celsius. Winds mostly light to moderate westerly overnight, but fresh or strong along western and southern coasts.

Tomorrow, Saturday, will be cloudy and wet in Munster, south Leinster and in many parts of Connacht, with further rain, heavy in places. Hill and coastal fog will persist here also.
