Northern Ireland weather forecast

Headline:

Showers on Monday turning thundery across west for the afternoon.

This Evening and Tonight:

A sunny evening for most except where cloud lingers along the north coast. Cloud will increase for a lot of areas overnight with mist and fog patches developing. Minimum temperature 7 °C.

Monday:

A dry start to Monday but with some mist or fog. Showers developing for the afternoon, these heavy with thunder across western districts, but relatively isolated east of Lough Neagh. Maximum temperature 23 °C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Mainly sunny on Tuesday but becoming showery later. A change to windier conditions on Wednesday and Thursday with increasing cloud and possibly some rain.

Updated:

UK long range weather forecast

Most likely an unsettled start to the period with showers in the west and perhaps longer periods of rain in the northeast, although still some settled weather in between. Over the bank holiday weekend a band of rain likely to arrive from the west, becoming weaker as it moves east and becoming more showery in nature with scattered showers also following. Into the new week increasingly settled conditions more likely for most, though rain may threaten north-western areas whilst some southern or eastern areas occasionally less settled with showers more likely later in the period though there will be some sunshine between them, the best of this in south-western parts. Temperatures are likely to be a little above average, but some large spatial differences are likely.

Updated:

Relatively weak signals for conditions to be markedly different from climatology through the first half of June. That said, both temperatures and rainfall are more-likely to be a little above average overall, with further rain or showers (possibly heavy/thundery at times) but also some spells of warm sunshine.
