The Bank Holiday weekend forecast does not make for happy reading.....

Longford Weather: Back to the dreaded rain as Met Éireann issues Status Yellow rainfall warning

It will be pretty wet and miserable for most of the Bank Holiday weekend

Sorry to everyone who was hoping for a fabulous June Bank Holiday weekend. The predictions from Met Éireann do not make for very happy reading.

Saturday, June 1 will start mostly dry but further outbreaks of rain will push in from the south in a light southerly airflow. Top temperatures will reach between 14 and 17 degrees. There will be further outbreaks of rain during Saturday night, possibly turning persistent and heavy. Lowest temperatures will be around 10 to 12 degrees in light southerly breezes which increase moderate later. 

Outbreaks of rain on Sunday morning will turn more showery later but some heavy bursts likely and bright or sunny spells will break through. It will turn cooler and breezier with top temperatures of around 13 to 16 degrees which is normal for the time of year but will feel cooler in the fresh and gusty westerly wind, strong along Atlantic coasts. 

Scattered showers will continue in the west and north on Sunday night and showers are likely to remain heavy in the north but elsewhere will become mostly dry with good clear spells. Lowest temperatures will fall to around 7 to 10 degrees in fresh and gusty southwest to west winds. 

Monday will be a cool and bright day with scattered showers, more frequent in the northwest and north. Turning cooler with top temperatures around 12 to 15 degrees in moderate westerly winds easing later.

So essentially, rain, rain and more rain.
