If you've woken up to rain, get used to it this weekend

The Leaving Cert weather certainly hasn’t shown up.

weather 2

PRETTY MUCH ALL parts of the country were soaked with rain at some point this morning and the bad weather is likely to stick around for much of the weekend.

Met Éireann says this morning’s rain, which is concentrated in the east of the country, will move towards the northwest where it will stay and get heavy.

The rest of the country should dry out for much of this afternoon and will benefit from some dry spells but strong breezes should keep things unseasonably cool for June.

The breeziness is set to continue into tomorrow and the weather will be pretty changeable with showers never too far away. Gusty winds will keep things cool with maximum temperatures ranging from just 11 degrees in the northwest to 16 degrees in the southeast.

Sunday is likely to be the best day of the weekend and will be dry with sunny periods for much of the day. Temperatures will remain cool though, peaking between 13 to 17 degrees.
