Met Éireann has said Ireland will see a mix of sunny spells and scattered showers this Bank Holiday weekend.
The forecaster said today (Saturday, 31 July) will be mostly cloudy with patches of mist and scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle.
However, these will gradually clear southeastwards later on in the day, allowing for some late afternoon and evening sunny spells to develop.
Temperatures will range from 15 degrees in the north to 21 degrees in the south.
Sunday will also bring a mix of cloud and sunny spells, according to Met Éireann.
The forecaster says it will be a dry day for most, although well-scattered showers will occur - mainly affecting eastern and Atlantic coasts. Temperatures will be between 15 and 19 degrees.
The Bank Holiday Monday will be a mostly dry day in the east and north with just well-scattered showers. However, outbreaks of rain and drizzle will affect the west and southwest.
Cloud amounts will vary for Monday, with the best of the sunny spells occurring in the evening. Temperatures will range from 16 to 19 degrees.
Met Éireann's outlook for the week ahead reads: "Unsettled overall with showers or longer spells of rain. Possibly turning breezy at times too.
"Temperatures staying around average for the time of year."
