Body and Soul fans and sun-seekers can look forward to fair weather this weekend.

You woke up to rain this morning but you'll be delighted to know that the weather is expected to improve over the weekend.

Today will be cloudy with scattered showers across the country but Friday provides drier and brighter conditions.

There'lll be a mix of clear spells and cloudy periods with moderate, fresh breezes and highs between 15 and 18 degrees... you can cope with that.

Met Eireann predict that Saturday will be largely dry and sunny with temperatures reaching 20 degrees. Rain is expected overnight but it will dry out by the morning.

Sunday will be another dry day but rain is expected to creep in from the west by the evening.

Temperatures will be slightly lower on Sunday, reaching top temperatures of 19 degrees, but it will feel warmer than Saturday due to high levels of humidity.

And those heading to Body and Soul festival in Ballinlough, County Westmeath can expect similar conditions for the weekend.

However, the area has experienced heavy showers in recent days so Met Eireann's Joanna Donnelly has encouraged festival-goers to "pack wellies". Those arriving on Friday should expect "muddy fields".

Temperatures in Ballinlough will reach 18 to 19 degrees on Saturday and will be mostly dry with showers overnight. Sunday will be another dry day, feeling warmer than Saturday but with similar temperatures.

Rain is expected to make an appearance on Sunday evening.
