Weather: Summertime blues for Northern Ireland as rain sweeps in to dampen mood

By Staff Reporter

The good people of Northern Ireland will go into the weekend brandishing brollies as the province sees a return to wet weather.

Parks and beer gardens have been busy this week with people enjoying a reprieve from a largely average summer.

Yesterday's heavy showers spoiled the welcome rest from rain, with people in Belfast such as a cyclist avoiding minor flooding caused by a downpour in Queen's Square in the city.

After the sun, the city was hit by a thunderstorm in the evening.

The Met Office said today would bring a mixture of sunny spells, wind and occasional showers especially in the west part of the province.

It added the outlook from tomorrow to Sunday is a mixture of sunny spells and occasional showers throughout, some of the them heavy, with the chance of hail and thunder.
