Weekend Outlook

Better weather is on the way tomorrow with good sunny spells and only a few passing light showers. It will feel much the same as today, with highest temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees.

However, Saturday is due to be very warm and humid across the country, with temperatures ranging between 19 and 25 degrees. Most places will get sunshine and dry weather, though south and southwest coasts may become dull.

Enjoy it while you can! Saturday night will see a band of rain crossing the country from the west, with southerly winds veering westerly by Sunday morning.
