May Bank Holiday Weather: Saturday is your best bet for some outdoor fun this weekend
It might not be as bad as it looks.
Met Éireann is forecasting a wet and blustery May bank holiday weekend, but there does appear to be some pockets of sunshine in between the downpours.
Showers will increase across Munster later this morning, becoming heavy at times through early afternoon with the risk of hail and isolated thunderstorms. Highest temperatures will remain between 10 to 12 degrees.
The showers will become isolated overnight with clear spells developing as temperatures drop as low as -1 with a touch of frost and some mist and fog patches.
If you’re planning a walk, Saturday morning is the ideal time to head out.
