Here’s what the Bank Holiday weekend weather has in store for us

Planning for the Bank Holiday weekend is no easy feat when you have the Irish weather to contend with, but the good news is that forecasters expect it to remain mostly dry and sunny.

Wondering what the Bank Holiday weather has in store? Apparently, it will be dry and sunny with high temperatures to boot too. Predicting that overall “a good deal of dry weather” is in store, it sounds like we’ll have plenty of reasons to get out and enjoy the Bank Holiday this weekend. Of course, this is Ireland, so the rain will never be too far away, but hopefully, it will stay just out of reach long enough for us to get the BBQ out and lap up a few 99s first. 

Here’s what Met Éireann predicts is in store this weekend:

Today 

The eastern half of the country will remain mostly dry today with sunny spells and just a few isolated showers. It will be somewhat cloudier across the western half of Ireland with forecasters predicting “occasional rain and drizzle” – mainly along the coast. Top temperatures will range from 14 to 19 degrees Celsius, with moderate southerly breezes expected throughout the day as well. 

Tonight

Rain and drizzle will develop overnight, becoming widespread and bringing patches of mist and fog along with them. Temperatures will remain relatively mild though, with lows of 8 to 12 degrees Celsius. 

Saturday 

The Bank Holiday will start off “rather dull and misty” according to Met Éireann with scattered outbreaks of light rain and drizzle likely. It’s not all bad news though, and sunny spells will break through during the afternoon. Showers will turn heavier over Ulster as the afternoon develops, with the “slight risk” of an isolated thunderstorm. Top temperatures will range from 14 to 19 degrees Celsius. Saturday night will be mainly dry with clear spells. 

Sunday 

Another “mostly dry” day promised, with a mix of cloud and sunny spells. A few isolated showers may occur in the east/southeast but temperatures are expected to reach 19 degrees Celsius. Overnight conditions will bring more of the same though there will be the risk of fog patches developing – some dense in areas. 

Monday

Mist and fog will clear away quickly and most areas will be dry with bright or sunny spells this Bank holiday Monday. Along the coast will be slightly cloudier with light rain or drizzle. High temperatures to be expected once again, ranging from 16 to 20 degrees Celsius. 

In even better news, forecasters believe that next week will bring “a good deal of warm, dry weather” yet again. So, smiles all around!
