From flooding to 22 degrees - this weekend's weather has it all
Summer, is that you in the distance?

TEMPERATURES ARE SET to hit up to 22 degrees over the weekend but don’t throw on the shorts just yet – it’s going to be a bit of a mixed bag with heavy rain and thundery downpours also making an appearance.

The sunny weather looks set to begin this evening with dull skies becoming bright and sunny and temperatures hitting up to 17 degrees.

Unfortunately it’s not all rosy from here in – the rain is going to sneak in tonight and tomorrow morning will start wet and cloudy.

Met Eireann is forecasting “widespread heavy rain and a risk of thundery downpours leading possibly to localised flooding”.

But don’t give up hope – it looks set to improve as the day goes on and Sunday sounds beautiful:

The day will become warm with temperatures rising to between 18 and 21 degree in southeasterly breezes.

The bad news is that Sunday isn’t perfect – with heavy thundery showers breaking over Munster and Connacht in the afternoon (but they will die away towards night).

The good news is that the sun isn’t disappearing – with temperatures set to hit up to 22 degrees on Monday.
