Met Éireann reveal that we're in for a day of 'rain, hail and thunder'

It's not looking too good.

If you were planning on doing anything today then you might want to hold off as it seems like it's going to be raining for the rest of the weekend.

Met Éireann has revealed that there will be rain across the whole country, with risk of hail and thunder.

The weather forecaster said: "A mix of sunny spells and showers today. The showers most frequent in the west at first but they will become more widespread through the course of the afternoon and evening. Some of the showers turning to longer spells of rain with the risk of hail and thunder.

"Highest temperatures of 8 to 12 degrees. Southerly winds mostly moderate in strength but increasing fresh and gusty in and around showers and strong at times along coasts."

And for tonight: "Showers will continue to occur tonight. The showers most frequent in southern and western areas with the continued risk of the odd heavy and thundery one.

"The best of the clear spells further east where a few mist patches may form. Lowest temperatures of 6 to 8 degrees with moderate southerly breezes but fresh at times along coasts."
