Aoife Kealy, meteorologist with Met Éireann, told BreakingNews.ie that there would be outbreaks of rain and drizzle on Saturday morning but otherwise, it should be a dull, cloudy day.
She also noted that there may be heavier bursts of rain in the northern half of the country with Saturday evening becoming a lot drier in Connacht and Ulster, but rain appearing in the south and southeast.
Temperatures are set to be mild, reaching 10 to 13 degrees on Saturday.
Rain is expected on Sunday, with Kealy saying: "It will also be windy in the north and northwest, because of a depression coming in, but it will still be mild, with temperatures reaching 11-13 degrees."
Next week is to also see some unsettled weather, which is set to ease off as the week continues.
