There will be outbreaks of showery rain this evening and early tonight across Laois and Leinster. The rain will clear eastwards around midnight with isolated showers thereafter. Long clear spells developing giving lowest temperatures of 1 to 4 degrees. Strong and gusty southerly winds will veer southwest and moderate.

It will be dry for most of Saturday with a mix of cloud and sunny spells. Cloud increasing later in the afternoon with some patchy rain expected towards evening. Top temperatures of 8 to 10 degrees in moderate southerly winds.
