Saturday night will be breezy with showery falls of rain, mainly affecting Atlantic counties and turning heavier through the course of the night. Lowest temperatures of 6 to 9 degrees Celsius, in moderate to fresh southwest winds.

Showers will become widespread through the morning and afternoon on Sunday. However, some sunny spells will develop into the afternoon with showers mainly confined to Atlantic coasts.
