THE LONG WEEKEND is starting off in style for most of Ireland, with sunshine over much of the country this morning.
But you might want to get out and enjoy it while you can – it probably won’t last until the bank holiday, according to forecasters.
Met Éireann’s rainfall radar shows that there are currently just a few spots of rain around Dublin and scattered around the west of the country. But it’s likely to become more widespread tomorrow and most of the country will be wet by Sunday evening.
Temperatures will be slightly cooler tomorrow, reaching only 9 to 12 degrees.
The bank holiday Monday, meanwhile, will see cool temperatures and some heavy showers – and we’re also in for “thundery downpours”, forecasters say.
However, it will be slightly warmer, reaching 14 degrees in some areas.
