It’s time to set the heating if you’ve been holding out.
Met Éireann is forecasting a chilly night ahead, as temperatures in Cork drop to between three and seven degrees after dark tonight.
According to the national forecaster, Friday will start with well-scattered showers but they will soon die out as good sunny spells develop.
It’ll be a fresh day in “rather brisk northwesterly winds”, which will also slowly ease with highest temperatures ranging from 13 to 15 degrees.
“On Saturday, an early brightness will quickly be replaced by wet and windy weather, easing up somewhat later in the evening.” said a forecaster.
Sunny spells & scattered passing showers – most frequent across the north.

“Highest temperatures will typically reach 16 or 17 degrees with mostly fresh to strong south to southeast winds.”
The outlook for Sunday is similarly unsettled, with scattered outbreaks of rain becoming more widespread and persistent with some very heavy falls, leading to localised flooding.
“Blustery too in fresh to strong and gusty southerly winds with highest temperatures of 17 to 19 degrees. Becoming drier overnight, though some showers will feed in later off the Atlantic,” they added.
