THE WEATHER’S SET to stay fine for the rest of the day – but it’s set to take a turn for the worse from tomorrow, and it will be cold and wet for much of the weekend.

Without doubt, the best of the weather will be on Good Friday afternoon, with plenty of hazy sunshine around.

The rain will arrive after midnight, and according to Met Éireann tomorrow will start overcast and wet in many places “especially the eastern half of the country, with rain, heavy or thundery at times”.

It will turn showery later, with occasional bright or sunny spells and temperatures of 9 to 11 degrees.

Sunday, when the main State commemorations of 1916 take place in Dublin, will be a “cold and breezy day with bright or sunny spells”.

“It will turn showery with the risk of hail or thunder. Showers will die out on Sunday night and winds moderate for a time. However, there is the risk of heavy rain in the south spreading northeastwards in freshening winds.”
