The weather over the bank holiday will be mild (with a bit of rain... and drizzle)

Rain, dry periods, temperatures up to 14 degrees.

THE WEATHER THIS bank holiday weekend is set to pretty mild – so unremarkable, so Irish, in fact, that we’re struggling to make this intro sound exciting.

Still, it’s good news if you feared a weekend of lashing rain and cold: we can expect temperatures up to 14 degrees in some places.

But we’ll still get rain… and drizzle.

Starting off with today, Met Éireann says that it will be cloudy and often dry but we can still expect patchy mist, drizzle and light rain to continue throughout the day, “turning persistent at times across Connacht and Ulster”.

The highest temperatures will be 13 – 15 degrees.

Tomorrow we can expect some dampness, with spells of rain and drizzle during the day. But if you’re in Leinster and Munster, the national forecaster suggests you will be happy as it will “stay generally dry”. Temperatures will reach 12 – 15 degrees.

On Saturday, it will be “dry and cloudy” with highs of 12 – 14 degrees, though outbreaks of rain will appear to spoil the evening.

Sunday will again see cloud, rain and drizzle, but with “good dry periods” too.

Temperatures are set to reach highs of 13 – 14 degrees.

We can expect more rain and dry periods on Monday, but by the middle of next week we should start anticipating frost at night time.
