You can keep the barbecue cover on, it doesn't look like we're in for a scorcher this May Bank Holiday weekend.

It's mixed weather for most of the country over the weekend, with at least some rain to make a show in all parts.

Met Éireann's Liz Walsh told RTE Radio One's Morning Ireland that a few bright and sunny intervals will be welcomed amidst the unsettled weather.

"It's mixed weather over the weekend, with rain in all parts especially Sunday," she said.

"Friday will see a dry day for many with bright intervals, but the highest temperatures will remain on the cool side with max temperatures of 10 degrees."

Saturday will see some early bright spells, if you set the alarm clock on time, but it will be mostly cloudy, damp and windy.

Top temperatures will hit 11 to 13 degrees.

Sunday will see outbreaks of rain, sometimes heavy, but at least we can lap up the three-day weekend feeling.

Finally, Monday will see more "uncertainty" in the outlook but it could be the best of the lot, according to Walsh.

Indications are for a good deal of dry and bright weather, with the best of the sunshine across the midlands.

"Top temperatures will be between 10 and 16 degrees," she added.
