The rest of the bank holiday weekend weather looks a bit rough

We hope this won't affect your plans...

The bank holiday weekend is here, and we're sure you've rallied the troops to take advantage of the long lie-in on Monday.


It's looking a bit dicey on the weather front, though, so maybe remember to bring a coat wherever you find yourself over the next few days and nights.

According to the latest forecast from Met Éireann, there will be outbreaks of rain across the west at first as Saturday evening unfolds, with a risk of localised flooding in some southern coastal counties.

The rain will eventually spread countrywide, with potential near-gale force winds on exposed coasts.

There will be scattered heavy showers, and potential thunder in the southwest.

Expect temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees overall on Saturday.


Sunday, meanwhile, will bring some sunny spells, but rain will persist across the west coast with scattered heavy or thundery showers.

Temperatures are due to reach between 13 and 16 degrees, with the best weather set for the east.

Monday will generally clear up, apart from some Atlantic coastal showers.

Expect a moderate breeze and temperatures between 10 and 13 degrees.

Don't forget your brolly...
