THE SUMMER IS well and truly over, with cold temperatures forecast this weekend.

Met Éireann forecasts that tomorrow will be cool and bright, with showers spreading from Ulster to the rest of the country by the afternoon.

Temperatures will range in the low teens during the day, before dipping between 5 and 10 degrees in the evening.

The weekend as a whole will be fairly dry, but will feel a good deal cooler than recent weeks.

Saturday will be even colder than Friday, although it will be mainly dry with sunny spells at first before scattered heavy showers develop in some areas.

It will turn “rather cold” overnight, according to Met Éireann, with air temperatures typically ranging between 2 and 6 degrees, and ground temperatures going below zero in rural areas.

The temperatures are set to pick up again to the mid-teens on Sunday, with just a few showers likely in the north and east of the country.
