The forecast for the Bank Holiday weekend isn't looking too bad

It's the last Bank Holiday of the summer, and thankfully it won't be a total wash out.

Met Éireann says that while it may feel cooler than the past few days, there should be a good bit of dry weather over the three days.

Scattered showers are likely in a few places, but most of them will be light and short-lived.

Ulster will get a few heavier spots of rain for a time but it will dry out later in the day.

Temperatures are slightly below normal for the end of July at 15 to 19 degrees, and winds will be moderate in a northwesterly direction.

Tonight will also be mainly dry with a few showers along western coasts. Temperatures will be between 8 and 11 degrees.


Sunday should bring a fair amount of dry and sunny weather, but there will be a few showers also.

Temperatures will remain on the slightly lower side of normal, though it should feel pleasant in sunshine with just light breezes.

It'll stay mainly dry through Bank Holiday Monday too for most places in the country, except the south and south west, where a band of rain may spoil some of the day.
