The glorious sun of the past week is set to end - albeit briefly - as the Met Office warns of a possible heavy rainfall to take its place.

Northern Ireland has been basking in Mediterranean-esque conditions for the past week.

But from lunchtime on Monday until around 9pm, the Met Office is warning of heavy rain across Northern Ireland.

Forecasters have in place a yellow warning, meaning to be aware and plan ahead for possible disruption.

During the afternoon some sharp, thundery, showers will develop, mostly confined to southern hills in Fermanagh, Armagh and Down at first before drifting north during the late afternoon.

Maximum temperatures should hit around 25 degrees.

The afternoon showers mostly dying out early evening, but returning from late evening and lingering overnight. Winds light and variable with lows of 9°C.

The Met Office has also issued another yellow warning for rain on Tuesday, again between 1pm and 9pm.

Temperatures will gradually cool throughout the day with afternoon showers heavy and thundery.

The week should be mostly dry with less sunshine and only isolated showers. Friday will be cloudy with occasional heavy rain coming in from the west.
