Met Éireann say that the weather today is going to be really mixed

Enjoying the bank holiday weekend?

Well, it's time to enjoy it that little bit more before it's over because we're in for a gorgeous day.

The weather forecaster said that while showers will hit this afternoon, there will be longer periods of dry spells as the day goes on, with temperatures reaching the high teens too.

"Sunny spells and heavy showers this afternoon and evening with longer dry periods in the eastern half of the country. Highs of 13 to 17 degrees with southwesterly winds becoming lighter through the day."

Meanwhile, tonight: "Showers will become more isolated tonight as long clear periods develop. Lows of 7 to 10 degrees in light breezes."

The rest of the week will be a mix of sun and showers with Wednesday being a bit all over the place.

"Wednesday will be another rather cool day. It will start largely dry with good sunshine but in the afternoon showers will develop, some heavy and thundery. Highest temperatures on the low side for the time of year, expected to reach just 11 to 14 degrees in light northerly or variable breezes."

So, enjoy the sun today while you can.
