Making plans for the weekend?
If you’re trying to decide the best times to venture out for a walk within your 5km zone, the latest forecast offers some insight.
According to Met Éireann, we can expect a cloudy start on most days with patchy drizzle and dry spells throughout the coming 48 hours. It will remain mild though so once you have a brolly in hand, you should be good to go.
Here’s when you can expect the best conditions for your daily constitutional:
Friday: Bring a brolly if you live near the coast
According to forecasters, it will be dry in most areas today, “with patches of mist and fog gradually clearing during the morning, with a few bright or sunny spells developing in places for a time”.
While it will be mostly dry in the city, it’s best to get your walking shoes on early if you live near the sea; there’s a chance of “a little patchy rain or drizzle developing later in the day, mainly in coastal areas”.
Maximum temperatures will range between 8 and 12 degrees.

Saturday: Avoid the morning walk
Grab a raincoat if you’re venturing out for a stroll on Saturday morning, forecasters are predicting a cloudy morning “with scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle, turning heavier in southern parts later” in the afternoon and evening.
There will be dry spells throughout the day and it will be mild overall, with maximum temperatures of 11 to 13 degrees.
Sunday: Plan an afternoon stroll
There’s another cloudy day in-store on Sunday, with scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle in the morning, but most of these will be in the north and east.
“Dry intervals will develop in most areas during the day,” says Met Éireann. Maximum temperatures will range between 11 to 14 or 15 degrees.
Again, it’s probably wise to get out for some exercise early in the afternoon; “A spell of persistent rain will develop in the southwest in the evening, extending northwards on Sunday night, but becoming patchy.”
