Met Éireann also has a Status Yellow warning in place for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim and Sligo which ends at 4pm tomorrow.

The weather is likely to be more settled by midweek, but it is unclear what to expect over the August bank holiday until the pressure clears.

August's patchy weather so far will continue for those in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the north of England as the category two hurricane loses strength over the Atlantic Ocean. It may not arrive until later in the weekend with Sunday set to be extremely wet with prolonged heavy rain forecast.

This warmer air from the storm is what will be noticed by the public over the weekend and into next week - weather that sounds more welcoming than high winds and heavy rain.

Today, Thursday, there will be a mix of cloudy and sunny spells.

Hurricane Gert, the second hurricane of the season in the Atlantic, is travelling along the eastern coast of the US.

Tonight, showers will be scattered, with lowest temperatures between 9 to 12 degrees Celsius.

As the hurricane makes it's way up between Ireland and Iceland, we'll be feeling the knock-on effects here, and by Sunday the weather will take a turn for the worse.

This will be seen particularly on Saturday night with heavy and more thundery rain moving in over the country, again leading to spot flooding in places. It will be mild and humid with low cloud, with highest temperatures reaching 16 to 20 degrees Celsius.
