Galway Daily weather Overcast skies forecast for Bank Holiday Weekend weather

After a sunny end to the day on Friday, the Bank Holiday weekend weather in Galway is forecast to be overcast, but mostly dry.

This evening and tonight promise to be warm and sunny, with clear and bright skies well into the evening.

Highest temperatures this evening of 13 to 15 degrees, with just a mild variable breeze.

Saturday will be more of a mixed bag, with partly cloudy skies and sunny spells in the morning, but with showers developing later in the day, turning heavy at times.

That said, it still promises to be a warm day according to Met Eireann, with temperatures reaching up to 16 degrees tomorrow afternoon.

Saturday will again see only light variable winds, while the rain will be heaviest overnight at inland areas of the county.

There promises to be a wet start to Sunday, with widespread showers in the morning, turning heavy at times.

But there will also be some spells of sunshine from behind the clouds intermittently during the day, and temperatures will also reach 13 to 15 degrees.

For next week, Met Eireann is currently forecasting more cloudy skies, with only small amounts of sunshine for most of the week.

Bank Holiday Monday promises to be a grey and overcast day, but a mostly dry one, with only a small chance of scattered showers.

Meanwhile, the Gardaí and Road Safety Authority are appealing for motorists to stay safe on the roads this weekend after five deaths were recorded over the Easter Bank Holiday.

A nationwide traffic operation began this morning, and will continue right through Monday and into Tuesday.
