Drier brighter weather will follow northwards this afternoon, but scattered outbreaks of rain will persist in parts of Ulster.

Highest temperatures will range from about 7 degrees Celsius in Ulster, to 12 degrees Celsius in the south and southwest in fresh southeast winds, strong at times in some northern and eastern coastal fringes.
