The weather will be quite literally as different as day and night in parts of Northern Ireland this May Bank holiday - with some areas expected to experience a drop in temperature of 15 degrees.

While Northern Ireland will have some of the best sunshine across the UK, temperatures of 11 or 12 degrees are slightly below average for this time of the year but it is the night time temperatures that could spell bad news for gardeners.

MET Office spokesman, Chris Snell said in some areas such as Katesbridge, Co Down the night-time temperature will be between minus four or minus five degrees

Mr Snell said: "Perhaps coming into Bank Holiday Monday we will have little bits and pieces of rain but that will be quite light and patchy.

"Daytime highs will be in low double figures of between 11 and 12 degrees C but more significantly will be the night time temperatures.

"A widespread frost can be expected all over the Bank Holiday weekend."
