A Met Eireann forecaster said: "Saturday will start out dry and sunny but cloud will increase from the south with scattered outbreaks of rain developing as the day goes on, many places will have long dry spells.

"Temperatures remain higher than usual for the time of year and still reaching as high as 22 degrees in longer spells of sunshine.

"There'll be further showers or longer spells of rain on Sunday and it'll be warmest in the north of the country with the rain possibly turning heavier in the south and east.
