The remnants of Storm Oscar are set to impact Ireland, as Met Eireann issues a dramatic forecast warning of thundery downpours and rising temperatures. The national forecaster predicts a warm and humid day with a dry and fresh start in the morning. Dry conditions are expected in many areas with scattered sunshine, but showers are predicted to move up from the southwest.

Scattered showers across the southwest in the morning will gradually extend into other parts of the country later in the day, with some heavy and thundery showers expected. Top temperatures of 21 to 26 degrees Celsius are expected, with a moderate east to southeast breeze. Saturday night is forecasted to be humid and very mild, with scattered showers tracking northwards, some heavy and thundery. Some mist or fog is predicted to set in later in the night. Lowest temperatures of 14 to 16 degrees Celsius are expected, with just light southerly breezes.

On Sunday, a mix of cloud and summer sunshine is predicted, with scattered showers expected too. There is potential for local thundery showers, with temperatures set to reach 20 to 25 degrees Celsius. Very little breeze is expected, save local sea breezes.
