Ireland will not fare so well. The next disturbance will bring bouts of rain to Dublin. Cool temperatures are expected with a high of just 17 C.

The disturbance bringing rain to Ireland on Saturday will quickly move across the U.K., but rain will linger into Sunday morning across Scotland, again affecting play at St. Andrews.

Much of Scotland, including Fife, could get a showery start to next week as another area of low pressure tracks west and north of the British Isles on Monday.
