MET ÉIREANN has issued a major weather warning for the whole of Ireland.
The country may have been basking in glorious sunshine in recent days but it looks set to come to a dramatic end.
Met Éireann issued a Status Yellow warning on Thursday, which comes into effect at 9am on Friday.
It warns of thunderstorms, high-intensity rainfall and spot flooding.
As much as 50mm of rainfall is expected to fall in a short space of time.
Showers are expected in eastern and south-eastern counties at dawn, becoming more widespread as the day progresses.
While the worst of the weather will have passed by Saturday morning, the north and north-west may be hit with thunder and showers during the day.
However the Bank Holiday weekend forecast isn't all doom and gloom.
From Sunday until Tuesday, the country is expected to be mainly dry, with temperatures hitting the mid-20s.
