Our mild October is forecast to turn cold and rainy this weekend

We set for a weekend of rain.

Time to resurrect those brollies.
Time to resurrect those brollies.

WHILE OCTOBER HAS so far been rather unseasonably mild, the weather is forecasted to turn nasty this weekend.

Met Éireann has said that rain is likely to turn persistent and heavy from Friday night. This is likely to affect most areas with the Midlands perhaps escaping the worst of the downpour.

The rain may clear on Saturday, especially in the north of the country, but further spells of rain will push into the southwest on Saturday night and spread northwards on Sunday morning.

Sunday is also expected to be a breezy day with temperatures of between 12 to 15 degrees.

The showery weather is also expected to continue into Monday with winds freshening throughout the day.

Before Friday, tomorrow is expected to be bright with scattered showers with temperatures of between 12 to 14 degrees.

Tomorrow night, however, it is predicted to get cold as temperatures drop to 2 to 7 degrees.
