Continuing mild overall, with bright or sunny spells and scattered light showers, once early mist and fog patches clear. Maximum temperatures will range 20 to 22 degrees generally, but a little cooler in east Ulster and along Irish Sea coasts with the cool onshore east to northeast breezes capping temperatures at 17 to 19 degrees. Mainly dry with clear periods on Wednesday night, and just the odd light shower. Mist and fog patches will reform in the light easterly breezes. Lows of 11 to 15 degrees.
