Saturday is looking like it will be cloudy mostly everywhere with only the odd sunny spell coming through. On Saturday afternoon there is the risk of heavy showers developing and forming into thunderstorms over parts of Munster and Leinster as they spread in from the southeast. Further showers are also possible over parts of Ulster over the day. Temperatures over the day will range between 19C to 24C.

Sunday will see a little more sunshine in the forecast but again over the afternoon there will be the risk of showers in parts heaviest over Munster. Temperatures over the day will range between 19C to 22C.

The outlook for next week is for cooler conditions across Ireland but when I say cooler I mean cooler than what its been for nearly two week now. Temperatures will drop back to the high teens possibly still reaching 20C on some days and still feeling warm.

Over the coming days details will become that bit clearer on they out come for next week.
