Heavy rain today and tomorrow, but Sunday doesn't look too bad
The weather won’t help transport disruption around the country.

THERE’LL BE HEAVY rain in many areas today, with thundery downpours in some places.

Meanwhile, major transport disruption is expected today as a number of Irish Rail and Dublin Bus services have been cancelled or delayed due to secondary picketing to do with the ongoing Bus Éireann strike, now in its eighth day.

Met Éireann has said the heavy rain over much of Ulster and east Leinster will soon clear, but there will be some scattered showers. These will be fairly widespread and heavy this afternoon and evening.

Top temperatures will range from 12 to 16 degrees Celsius, with temperatures dipping to three degrees in some areas.


Widespread showers will turn heavy tomorrow in central and eastern areas, where some thundery showers are possible.

Met Éireann says a clearance in more western areas in the early afternoon should reach eastern areas by the early evening. Highest temperatures will range from 10 to 12 degrees Celsius, dipping to zero in some places tomorrow night.

Sunday will be a “dry, bright day, with some good sunny spells”.

After a cold start, top temperatures will range from between 10 and 14 degrees in the afternoon. Patches of mist and drizzle are set to develop during Sunday evening and overnight, with lowest temperatures ranging from four to seven degrees.
