Brollies Up – It’s Going To Bucket Down This Weekend

James Fenton

Met Éireann is forecasting a weekend of grim weather with Saturday in particular set to be a washout.

Today, rain will become persistent in the west and northwest this evening with heavy showers along the coastal counties throughout the night. describes Saturday as:

“A cold, crisp and bright day with sunny spells in all areas, but increasingly blustery and showery also. Some of the showers will be heavy with hail, with a risk of thundery downpours, especially in Atlantic coastal counties. Top temperatures just 7 to 11 degrees in gusty west to northwest winds, reaching gale at times along the Atlantic Seaboard.”

However, things will improve slightly on Sunday which will be:

“The drier day of the weekend with spells of sunshine occurring in most parts. Still a few showers around though, especially through west Ulster and north Connacht, but becoming isolated by evening. Highs of 8 to 11 Celsius with northwesterly winds gradually abating.”

Sounds like ideal weather for a toastie festival, don’t you think?
