The weather forecast for the weekend is miserable (sorry)

But on the bright side, the weather during the week will be grand.


SUMMER, IF IT ever existed, will be well and truly over this weekend.

Met Éireann says that while this week will be largely settled and dry, the weekend will see heavy showers and long spells of rain.

While most of the week will be cloudy with sunny spells and temperatures reaching the high teens, the weekend will not follow that pattern.

“Friday will be similar with the best of any sunshine in the east and with outbreaks of rain developing in the west. However through Friday evening and night, showers or longer spells of rain will move up from the south and become widespread overnight.

“This will mark the beginning of more unsettled weather over the weekend with heavy showers or longer spells of rain at times in all areas on Saturday and Sunday. It will become cooler also with daytime temperatures of around 14 to 17 degrees.

“At the moment it looks like the unsettled showery weather will continue through the early days of next week.”
