Ireland's brief time moonlighting as a Mediterranean country has come to end, according to Met Éireann. 

Widespread showers and gusty winds look set to take over this week across the country bringing the entire country back down to earth after the weekend's sun-kissed frivolities.

Outbreaks of rain and drizzle will continue for the rest of the day with occasional heavy outbreaks. It will get brighter from the west later in the afternoon with top temperatures ranging from 11 to 15 degrees. 

Tonight will be mostly dry with evening showers clearing up but outbreaks of rain across southern counties will break through by morning. Lowest temperatures five to nine degrees.

Tomorrow will see the best of the sunshine this week across northern counties with just a few outbreaks of rain. Generally cloudy and wet across the rest of the country with heavy and persistent rain fall in some areas. Top temperatures 11 to 13.

A Met Éireann forecaster told us there is a strong chance of "thundery downpours and localised flooding in some areas," as well as blustery winds and temperatures of 10 to 13 on Wednesday. Showers will head out towards the Atlantic in the evening with temperatures dropping back to two to six during the night.

Rain and scattered sunny spells are in store for Thursday will slightly cooler temperatures of nine to 11 degrees while fresh to moderate westerly winds will continue. 

Winds should die down on Friday as well as showers becoming more isolated. Top temperatures of 10 to 12 degrees, the night will be cooler will a touch of frost in scattered areas. 

Saturday winds will be mostly light with scattered showered and sunny spells.

Canal cans seems like a distant memory already.
