Temperatures are set to decrease gradually across the country this weekend but we’re in for a fresh day on Saturday.

All-Ireland day looks set to be a mainly dry day with a mix of cloud and bright spells. Highest temperatures will range between 15C to 18C.

“Saturday looks set to be a fresh day with a mix of cloud and bright spells. There'll be some showers about, chiefly affecting parts of Ulster but the odd shower cannot be ruled out elsewhere,” a Met Éireann forecaster said.

It will be dry across most of the country on Saturday night apart from a few isolated showers with minimum temperatures of 9C to 12C.

Met Éireann forecast that outbreaks of rain will develop on Sunday in southern counties.

“On Sunday, outbreaks of rain are forecast to develop in southern counties, perhaps extending northwards across the Midlands later in the day. Staying mainly dry further north with bright spells and isolated showers. Highest temperatures of 14C to 18C in moderate east to northeast winds,” a Met Éireann forecaster said.

Heavy rain is expected to develop across the southern half of the country on Sunday night, bringing a risk of spot flooding. It will stay mainly dry further north with clear spells. Minimum temperatures of 8C to 12C, coolest in Ulster.
