The odd sunny spell, but no more.
Met Éireann’s regional forecast for Munster for the coming weekend is not exactly inspiring, but it does at least promise some sunshine in amongst the cloud and fog.
Friday (January 14th) will be mostly dry, with just isolated patches of drizzle and the some limited sunshine. Temperatures won’t rise above 10 degrees, and will fall as far as zero when night falls. Frost is expected to develop after dark.
Saturday is expected to be a mild, not-at-all unpleasant day: “Any frost, mist and fog will clear on Saturday morning. It will be quite a cloudy day with patches of light rain or drizzle, but some sunny periods will develop too. Highest temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees with a light southerly breeze.”
Saturday night, however, will bring an increased chance of rain, and temperatures throughout the evening will be between two and five degrees.
Any sunshine Ireland might get is expected to miss Cork on Sunday. “Sunday morning will be mostly cloudy with a few patches of light rain or drizzle and any mist or fog will be slow to clear,” Met Éireann forecast, and the sun will move from the northwest to the southeast.
Sunday night will be bitter, with temperatures liable to drop to -3 degrees.
