Wet weekend ahead as Met Éireann forecasts ‘a rumble of thunder’ in Cork
Now would probably be a good time to invest in a decent rain coat.
The season of frequent showers and chilly nights is officially upon us, with Met Éireann predicting a weekend of cold, wet weather.
‘There’ll be further showers today, becoming widespread through the day and occasionally bringing a rumble of thunder.’ warns the national forecaster.
‘Winds will be light and variable in direction, becoming moderate northerly later. Highest temperatures will range between 12 and 14 degrees. There’ll be sunny spells with the sun low in the sky causing dazzling at times.’

Temperatures tonight will fall to between 6 and 8 degrees and showers will become isolated with long dry spells developing but there’ll be further showers tomorrow, Saturday, with sunny spells and temperatures ranging between 13 and 15C.
Sunday will be a dry, sunny day, turning cold and misty on Sunday night
Met Éireann says: ‘The mist will linger for a time on Monday morning then it will be a mainly dry day with some sunshine breaking through, the best in the south. Temperatures will again range 11 to 13 degrees with light variable winds and it’ll turn cold again overnight on Monday night.’
Looks like cosy pub weather to us.
