Forecasters say cloud cover is set to increase over the next few days, with a dull, damp day forecast for many areas tomorrow.
The best of the Bank Holiday weather will be felt on Monday, with meteorologists expecting some sunny spells and highs of 17 degrees.

Alan O'Reilly from Carlow Weather says we'll have to wait until June to feel the real summer heat:
"We've had a fine spell of weather which you can et in April, which some people think Summer starts on the first of May, it actually starts on the first of June."
"So we have another month of Spring to come, so while May might be our sunniest month, it may bring some changeable weather."
The last of the lovely clear bright mornings for a few days. We have had a good run of it but some rain will help bring on the grass and May flowers and it won’t be much. pic.twitter.com/hHLbWUhrNL
