It looks like the recent heatwave will become a distant memory as rain and drizzle is set to settle over the country next week. 

However, the forecast for the rest of the bank holiday isn’t too bad, with a good deal of dry weather tomorrow and Monday before the showers return by midweek.

The scorching hot temperatures during the heatwave have also levelled off with more average readings for this time of year.

While today was mostly cloudy with patches of mist and scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle, these will gradually clear south-eastwards later today allowing some evening sunny spells to develop.

Any remaining showers will die away early tonight and most areas will be dry with a mix of cloud and clear spells.

A few light showers will develop in northern and north-western coastal areas towards dawn.

There will be a mix of cloud and sunny spells tomorrow although will be a dry day for most of the country. Scattered showers will mainly affect eastern and Atlantic coasts. Highest temperatures will range between 15 and 19 degrees.

Bank Holiday Monday will be another mostly dry day in the east and north with just a few well scattered showers.

Outbreaks of rain and drizzle will affect the west and southwest, however, with the best of the sunny spells occurring in the evening.

Highest temperatures will stretch between 16 and 19 degrees in light northerly or variable breezes. Most areas will be dry on Monday night with clear spells and just the odd light shower.

Many areas will start off dry on Tuesday, with hazy morning sunshine away from cloudier conditions on southern and western coasts with the odd light shower.

Outbreaks of rain and drizzle will persist over the western half of the country on Tuesday night, but it will be drier further east with some clear spells developing overnight.

There will be some sunny spells in eastern areas to begin with on Wednesday, but it will be mostly cloudy in the west and along the south coast with outbreaks of rain and drizzle.

The cloud will thin out in the west and scattered showers will develop across the country for the afternoon, some heavy with the odd rumble of thunder possible.

Highest temperatures will range between 18 and 21 degrees in mainly light or moderate southeast breezes.

Me Eireann adds that the further outlook is for unsettled conditions overall with showers or longer spells of rain. It will be possibly turn breezy at times too, with temperatures staying around average for the time of year.
