Today

It will be blustery today with showers possibly merging into longer spells of thundery rain.

The heaviest of the showers are likely across the west and northwest to begin, moving eastwards in turn through the late morning and afternoon.

Some of the downpours will lead to spot flooding and impaired visibility.

Bright or sunny spells will occur too though, with showers moving away into the Irish Sea this evening.

It will be relatively cool, with highest temperatures 15 to 17 degrees Celsius. West to northwest breezes will be fresh to strong and gusty, especially around showers and coastal areas.

Tonight

Showers will be scattered tonight, with a lot of dry weather developing under broken cloud.

Lowest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees Celsius. Northwest winds will remain quite brisk.
