Met Éireann has issued a status yellow rain warning for two counties with the possibility of flooding.
The warning, which covers Counties Kerry and Cork, comes into effect at 4pm on Saturday and will apply until the same time on Sunday.
The forecast calls for heavy rain from Saturday afternoon through Sunday afternoon, with the possibility of local flooding and dangerous driving conditions.
Tonight it will be hazy or foggy. Later in the night a patchy drizzle moves south with lowest temperatures between 4°C and 7°C, with slightly changeable or southerly winds freshening near the west and south-west coasts towards morning.
Fog and fog will clear early on Saturday to allow for a mostly dry start with sunny spells, although patchy drizzle will affect southern counties.
Over the course of the afternoon, thickening clouds along with spells of rain will gradually move across the western half of Ireland, becoming heavy in the evening and early night, particularly in the south-west.
Much of the East and North East is likely to remain dry with sunny spells and maximum temperatures of 13°C to 17°C generally with moderate to fresh southerly winds.
There will be further outbreaks of rain on Saturday night, with potentially severe and prolonged falls, which will lead to local flooding.
It’s going to be a mild and muggy night with patches of fog and mist and lows of between 9°C and 11°C with a light south-easterly breeze.
Easter Sunday starts wet in many areas with early rains followed by heavy showers with a risk of hail.
Highest temperatures range from 12°C to 15°C but get cooler as the rains subside. It will be windy with a moderate to fresh south-west wind.
Sunday night will be largely dry with clear periods, although isolated showers will move into the western coastal areas.
It will be a cold night with low temperatures of 1°C to 4°C and a light south-west breeze.
Monday will feel cooler with a mix of sunny spells and blustery showers, some potentially heavy with hail in the north. The highest temperatures are between 9 °C and 12 °C with moderate to fresh westerly winds.
