According to Met Éireann, "showery outbreaks of rain" are making an appearance today and are set to last right up until the weekend.

Starting out dry and bright this morning, we can expect to see hazy sunshine accompanied by outbreaks of rain during the day.

Met Éireann said: "Showery outbreaks of rain elsewhere will gradually become more widespread, turning heavy and possibly thundery at times, especially in the south and east. However, it will remain dry for much of the day in the north. Drier conditions, with showers, will develop later in the south, extending northwards this evening and early tonight."

By Thursday, it will again start out mostly dry, but some showers will occur in west Munster, Connacht and west Ulster and travel east. The midlands are staying clear of any rain with some gorgeous sunny spells.

Temperatures today will reach highs of 21 degrees and drop slightly to 17 degree highs on Thursday.

Friday will see sunny spells but rain will soon follow, with temperatures of 14 to 18 degrees.

The forecaster said: "A spell of rain will push into Munster and Connacht from the Atlantic in the afternoon. However, it will stay largely dry with sunny spells over Ulster and Leinster."

But don't lose hope for a sunny bank holiday weekend, the rain is due to ease up on Saturday and lead into a sunny and dry Sunday.

Temperatures will hit 19 degrees on Saturday and on Sunday, it's looking like a largely sunny and dry day, with the odd rain shower here and there, reaching up to 17 degrees.
