We’ve been enjoying some seriously summery weather over the last week but Met Éireann has warned that things are about to take a turn for the worse.
The forecast for this weekend has been released, with experts warning that rain and drizzle will return from later on today.
Wednesday will see “scattered showers with sunny spells” with conditions improving towards the evening with top temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees.
The rain will return on Thursday, with inclement weather continuing into Friday and the weekend.
“Rain will spread north to affect all areas during Friday, becoming persistent for several hours and accompanied by freshening southerly winds,” said a Met Éireann spokesperson.
“This rain will then give way to rather showery conditions for Saturday and Sunday, with heavy and locally thundery showers possible on both days. Temperatures will barely reach normal values at the weekend but winds will be light much of the time before turning west to northwest, moderate to fresh later.”
Things don’t look to be improving early next week either so it might be time to get the coats out again!
