ARE YOU TRYING to make outdoor plans for the weekend?

It’s certainly not going to be all sunshine and roses. Not at all.

Cloudy weather and rain in Leinster and east Munster will spread to most areas today with the rain becoming heavy at times.

Met Éireann even warned of spot flooding for today.

However, some areas along the west coast will escape the rain and stay mainly dry.

Tonight will be cloudy and misty with further rain and drizzle and lowest temperatures of just three degrees.

Things aren’t looking much better for Sunday with the forecaster warning of more cloudy spells, rain and showers.

Sunshine may peep through on Tuesday at some stage with mainly dry weather and temperatures reaching 13 degrees in the afternoon.
