GET THE UMBRELLAS out for this weekend as the country is set to experience outbreaks of rain across the next two days.

This afternoon is set to be dry in most parts of the country, with some sunny spells and a few isolated showers. 

However, Met Éireann said rain and drizzle will develop in the southwest later and extend across most of Munster by this evening. 

The rain will gradually extend across the country with mist and fog on hills/coasts.

As for tomorrow, the morning will be mostly cloudy with some scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle.

It will brighten up from the southwest during the day with some sunny spells developing, but there will also be showers.

Some showers will be heavy and thundery in parts with a risk of localised flooding, the forecaster said. 

There will be light to moderate southerly breezes and maximum temperatures will range between 17 and 20 degrees.

Tomorrow night will be mild and humid with some heavy or thundery showers continuing in parts of the country. There will also be mist and hill/coastal fog in parts with lowest temperatures of 13 to 15 degrees. 

On Sunday, there will be widespread, heavy and slow-moving showers with thundery downpours leading to spot flooding.
