We weren’t expecting this.
Given the recent visits of Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis, we fully expected another two days of torrential downpours this weekend.
Met Éireann is reporting it’s not all doom and gloom, however, with ‘good dry periods’ forecast across Saturday and Sunday.
Today’s ‘light and patchy’ rain will clear off on the regular, with temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees for the rest of Friday.
Windy today with outbreaks of rain extending southeastwards across the country. The rain will be heaviest and most persistent across the west and north of the country with the lengthiest dry periods in southern and southeastern counties.

“Saturday will be cold and breezy with sunny spells and showers.” says the national forecaster. “A few hail showers are possible.”
It will be cloudier by evening with more persistent rain developing early in the night. Sunday will kick off with some mist and drizzle early in the morning but it is expected to brighten up with good dry periods for a time on Sunday afternoon.
Plenty of time to head out for some fresh air without getting drenched.
