What a difference a day makes...your morning weather forecast


Look at all that green space….compared to yesterday.

ALTHOUGH YESTERDAY’S STORM didn’t live up to its pretty terrifying name, it still wasn’t that pleasant.

So, this rain radar from Met Éireann was a welcome sight this morning.

However, it might only be a temporary reprieve as forecasters predict outbreaks of rain across the south coast by early afternoon which will spread north to all areas this evening. The good weather people believe they will then turn persistent and heavy.

Highest temperatures are expected to hit a balmy 18 to 21 degrees Celsius.

And it doesn’t look like it will get much better next week with wet conditions likely to become widespread by the middle of next week after earlier “warm, muggy and rather cloudy conditions”.

The only silver lining? A dry and warm Saturday.
