Say hello to the weekend and goodbye to mild weather.

As the weekend rolls in, so does the rain as temperatures drop to below 8C.

According to Met Eireann, persistant rain will begin this evening and last into the weekend, with Western counties worst hit.

The forecaster said: "Rain will become persistent along the Atlantic Seaboard later this evening and early tonight.

"The rain, locally heavy and accompanied by a slight risk of thunder, will extend eastwards overnight, with clear spells and scattered showers following from the west before dawn. Lows of 8 to 11 degrees.

"Mainly moderate southwest to west winds inland, but increasingly fresh to strong and gusty near coasts."

On Saturday showers are set to move North into Ulster:

"Tomorrow Saturday, early rain in the east will give way to sunny spells and scattered showers from the west. Some of the showers will be heavy, especially about Ulster. It will, however, be largely dry countrywide by evening, with any showers increasingly isolated.

"Top temperatures will range from 14 degrees in the northwest to 19 degrees in parts of the east and southeast. Blustery westerly winds will gradually moderate through the day,"

Sunday then is looking cloudy with patchy outbreaks, but it will be become dry and bright just in time for your Sunday night fear.
