Saturday, September 14, is expected to be another dry day across the Leinster and Munster with some sunny spells. Outbreaks of rain look likely to develop in parts of Connacht and west Ulster by the late afternoon and evening. Top temperatures are to range from 16 to 21 degrees.

Saturday night will be cloudy for the most part, with a few patches of rain and drizzle. However, most areas are expected to stay dry overnight. Minimum temperatures of 9 to 14 degrees, coolest across the northern half of the country.

Current forecasts suggest a mostly cloudy day on Sunday, with scattered outbreaks of rain in places. There is still some uncertainty regarding the exact position and timing of a weather front which is due to progress southwards over the country on Sunday.

Top temperatures will vary from as low as 14 degrees to 19 or 20 degrees, with warmest spells in the south.
