Unsettled weather on the horizon for Northern Ireland

By Nevin Farrell

Sizzling September temperatures - with reports of the mercury climbing as high as 21C in some parts of Northern Ireland - coaxed crowds out to the coast yesterday.

And some even ventured onto the beach for a spot of sun-bathing.

Enjoy it while you can – our 'Indian Summer' is not expected to last and there is unsettled weather on the horizon. Some showers are predicted for tomorrow, although temperatures will stay in the late teens.

Yesterday, surfers were riding the waves in the seas off Portrush as Antrim's north coast basked in temperatures more suited to the Mediterranean.

The first half of September was Northern Ireland's driest for more than half a century, according to the Met Office. We had just 1.2mm of rain from the start of the month to September 15.
