Not bad, not spectacular - your forecast for the last long weekend of the summer

The heavier rain should halt just to the southwest of Ireland, according to forecasters.

THE WORST OF the upcoming rain should hold off until after the bank holiday weekend, according to the latest outlook from Met Éireann.

As we head into the final long weekend of the summer (sorry), forecasters are predicting a fine few days, with only occasional rain and a generous helping of warm sunshine.

There’ll be some long spells of rain this evening, after sunny spells in the late morning and early afternoon.

It’ll be sunnier tomorrow, with just isolated showers and temperatures of up to 20 degrees.

Here’s how it’s looking for the following three days:

  • Saturday: Sunny spells and scattered showers, but plenty of dry weather everywhere. Highs in the late teens. 
  • Sunday: A fair amount of sunny weather again, with the odd shower and similar temperatures. 
  • Monday: Current indications are that Bank Holiday Monday will be mainly dry and bright, according to Met Éireann “and that the rain halts just to the southwest of Ireland”. 

After that, it looks like we may be in for a spot of more unsettled weather, with rain and strengthening winds.
