Bank Holiday barbecues may be off the menu after Met Eireann predicted a partial washout.
Met Eireann predict temperatures will be cooler and it will be colder than usual for this time of the year.
Rain, hail, sub-zero temperatures and even thunderstorms are in store.
Hopes of seeing off the long weekend with an al-fresco pint have been dashed by forecasts of rain which is expected to only worsen by next week.
Showers will become more frequent during the afternoon and some will be heavy with hail.
The national forecaster is expecting unseasonably wet and windy weather later in the Bank Holiday weekend.
The mercury is set to hit -2 degrees celcius tonight.
Met Eireanns Siobhan Ryan said it will be a mix of dry and wet conditions for today and tomorrow.
She added: Temperatures will be a bit disappointing given the time of year, around 9C to 12C.
Thats for Saturday and Sunday but at least the winds should be light.

Temperatures dipped as low as -2C on Friday night as the country was gripped by a bitterly cold spell.
A touch of frost and mist patches were expected this morning.
Ms Ryan said: Any mist or frost will quickly clear on Saturday morning. A similar day to recent ones with sunshine and scattered slow moving, possibly thundery, showers.
Highest temperatures will once again range from a relatively cool 9C to 12C, in just light, variable, mainly northerly breezes.
