This weekend is set to bring dry spells and sunny weather, but the showers haven’t gone away fully yet.

Rain will travel from the south west to the rest of the country this evening, but is expected to be mostly cleared overnight. 

Speaking to RTE’s Morning Ireland, meteorologist Joanna Donnelly forecast a dry, warm Saturday for the most part, although showers are to be expected.

"Any lingering rain will clear the east on Saturday morning. It will become largely dry with sunny spells for much of tomorrow," Met Eireann's Ms Donnelly said.

"However, there’ll be a narrow band of showery rain in the west in the afternoon sweeping eastwards across the country during the evening, but that should move quickly and short-lived, and it’ll be dry and sunny again when that moves through."

It’s also shaping up to be a warm Saturday, with top temperatures between 18 and 21 degrees expected.

Sunday will see a dry start to the day, but widespread showers are forecast for most of the afternoon throughout the country, before dying off in the evening.

A slight drop in temperatures will also be seen, with top temperatures only reaching 17 degrees.

Monday will also see a mix of fair weather and isolated showers, although Ms Donnelly did say that temperatures are predicted to get warmer as the week continues.
