According to forecasters it's set to be a bright but blustery weekend.

That 'Leaving Cert' weather was brief and it looks set to remain that way for the next two days. 

The guys over at Met Eireann and the trusty yr.no predict a windy weekend with sporadic showers and bright spells. 

Friday: "Rain in the east and north will clear this morning and a bright and breezy day will follow with sunny spells and a few scattered showers," Met Eireann said. 

"In the northwest, showers will merge into longer and heavy spells of rain later today. Highest temperatures of 12 to 16 degrees, mildest across the eastern half of the country."

"Heavy and prolonged showers" will continue later on tonight. 

Saturday "will be a blustery day with sunny spells and showers."

"The showers will become isolated later in the afternoon. It will be cool for early June with maximum temperatures ranging from just 11 degrees in the northwest to 16 degrees in the southeast."

According to the forecasters at yr.no, Sunday will be an invariably bright day. 

Sunday will be dry for most areas with sunny spells throughout the day. Highest temperatures on Sunday of 13 to 17 degrees with mainly light breezes. 

The weather next week will be largely volatile, with rain forecast for Monday, Thursday and Friday. Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to be bright.
