Those planning to spend the rest of the June Bank Holiday weekend out and about may now have to start making different plans.

Yesterday’s showery weather, which emerged in the afternoon, is expected to carry over into the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend as more spells of persistent rain are forecast.

Today could see temperatures reach as high as 18 degrees, but scattered showers from the west are expected to become widespread and heavy as the day continues.

Tonight will see wet and windy weather travel across the country overnight, with night time temperatures ranging between 7 and 10 degrees according Met Eireann.
