WE may still be drying off from the wet Bank Holiday weekend – but don’t put the brolly away just yet.

While many parts of the country are basking in sunshine this afternoon – it won’t last as heavy showers spread from the west throughout the evening.

Further rain will spread from the Atlantic overnight, with very blustery conditions on western and north-western coastal areas.

Showers will be widespread tomorrow morning, and heavy in many areas.

These showers will slowly dissipate over the afternoon, but scattered showers will occur.

Temperatures will remain low, with maximum temperatures of just 16 degrees possible in some southern coastal areas.

Met Eireann have also issued a Yellow Weather warning for Donegal, Mayo and Galway.

Residents are warned to prepare for high winds with gusts of up to 100km/h possible in some exposed areas.

Early indications for next week suggest the weather could turn more settled – with temperatures reaching the high teens.

However next weekend looks set to be more unsettled, but perhaps not as wet as the next 48 hours.
