# Rain Rain Go Away
It's lovely out again today - but heavy rain is on the way for the weekend


After a week of sustained nice weather, rain is set to reappear today and over the weekend.

That doesn’t mean the temperatures will drop, though.

Met Éireann forecasts that today will see temperatures climb to around 23 degrees Celsius across the country, but some showers may creep in across west Munster.

Tonight will be mainly dry with some cloud and drizzle in Ulster and temperatures dropping as low as seven degrees.

Into the weekend, the weather will be warm and dry tomorrow, but cloud and showers will develop in Leinster and Ulster. Even in that rain, highs will reach 24 degrees.

Tomorrow night will be warm and mainly dry, with some showers in the east.

On Sunday, those bands of rain will move west from Leinster into Connacht and will become heavy. Though the temperature will hit 23 degrees.

Bank holiday Monday will see showers become widespread and heavier, with the threat of thunder and lightning.

Still, it was nice while it lasted, wasn’t it?
