Is Northern Ireland set for another burst of sunny weather this weekend?

An overnight dousing of rain - some places saw more than 20mm - had many reaching for raincoats and umbrellas this morning. Temperatures, however, have held in the high teens but can we expect the warmer weather we've grown accustomed to in the last few weeks to return during the course of Saturday and Sunday?

According to the Met Office this evening and tonight will be cloudy for most with 'a little rain and drizzle'. We can expect most places across NI to be dry overnight, with some light winds. It will feel quite mild with a minimum temperature 12 °C.
