IRELAND WILL SEE a wet weekend due to the tail ends of two hurricanes hitting us.

The remnants of hurricanes Lee and Maria will make their way to Ireland over the weekend, bringing some heavy rain.

Met Éireann says that while tonight will have some patchy heavy showers, tomorrow will see some more persistent rainfall.

“The rain should start to clear eastwards later in the afternoon. Largely dry elsewhere, with some bright or short sunny spells best over northern areas and just a few scattered showers. Top temperatures of 13 to 16 degrees Celsius, in mostly light to moderate southerly or variable winds.”

Into Sunday, a spell of rain will extend eastwards across the country, turning heavy in places.

“The rain will be accompanied by strengthening southwesterly winds. Becoming very mild with minimum temperatures of 8 to 11 degrees (coolest early in the night).”

The spell of heavy rain will move eastwards on Monday and Tuesday.
