The Weather: Will August be better than July?
'Good sunny spells' forecast for Saturday

The official last day of summer falls on Friday.
And true to form, more rain is expected.
Thursday will start with some sunshine - but by early afternoon, the clouds will gather with rain moving from west to east with temperatures highest at 17 degrees.
Friday is not much better. Outbreaks of rain and drizzle are forecast for the start of the day and will move eastwards. It will be dry overnight heading into Saturday.
As we all know, Saturday is the first of August and we're going to get some respite from the rain.
"There'll be a lot of dry weather for Saturday, perhaps a few isolated showers, but good sunny spells too and with mainly light southerly winds and temperatures up to between 15 and 18 degrees in the afternoon, it'll feel like the better of the days," say Met Eireann in their forecast.
"Once again however, thickening cloud in the west later will bring rain Saturday evening or Saturday night," Met Eireann say.
Sunday looks like it will be another miserable day with more rain.
And unsettled weather will continue into next week.
It's always sunny when the kids go back to school in September isn't it?
