Rainfall has been gradually on the increase this afternoon as a frontal system pushes northeast. Expect a thoroughly miserable night across most areas with persistent and at times heavy rain accompanied by a strong, gusty southeast wind. Not a cold night with lows of 8-10C.

Saturday starts wet but conditions improve through the morning with even some bright spells into the afternoon. Rain will still be around although much patchier. Temps will be mild at 14 to 15C.

More rain spreads up from the southwest Sunday with winds remaining fresh. Staying mild.

Monday looks to see a brief break before more rain arrives Tuesday onwards. Remaining mild for the time of year.

After a wet end to the work week, conditions improve this evening and overnight but with breeze will remain fresh to strong and that wind will keep the showers rattling through. Persistent rain will continue in more Northern areas tonight before eventually clearing. It’s a mild night to come with lows of 9-13C.

Saturday will keep the showers going in the South and Southeast and while another wave of precipitation swings into the Southeast, so a raft of heavy, blustery showers will impact the Southwest. Through the afternoon and in between the rain, the sun will shine and it will feel quite warm at 15-18, locally 19C.

Sunday looks to be a sunshine and shower regime. Winds remain strong out of the south and it remains mild with highs of 17 or 18C.

More showers to come Monday with winds remaining fresh.


It’s a very wet and blustery night throughout Wales but the good news is that this rain should ease in intensity overnight. Winds remain brisk but it’s mild at 12-14C.

Saturday dawns somewhat drier but make the most of this as a raft of heavy, blustery, possibly thundery showers sweep west to east across the country through the day. But there should be some sunshine once this feature passes. It remains warm for the time of year with highs of 16 or 17C.

Sunday will see the next front swing through bringing another round of rain and increased wind. Highs staying mild at 16-18C.

More rain to come Monday.

Northern Ireland

It’s been a wet old day throughout Ulster with local flooding causing issues with tonight’s rush hour. The rain eases in the west while it continues through much of tonight. Staying mild at 10-12C with winds remaining strong out of the southeast.

Saturday stays showery, windy with more organised rain spreading up from the south through the afternoon and into the evening. Highs stay mild for the time of year at 14 or 15C.

Bands of rain continue to sweep in from the low to the west during Sunday as well as Monday. It stays mild, blustery.


After a very wet and blustery day across the Republic, conditions ease for a time tonight with some drying to be had. However the next arm of rain swings up from the south during the second half of the night. This rain intensifies as it lifts north over the country during Saturday morning. Lows tonight stay mild at 10-14C with winds staying fresh, strong at the coast.

Saturday turns increasingly wet through the day, especially the further north you go. Highs 14-17C.

More rain to come Sunday and Monday.
