Bet you wish you dressed as a bin bag now…

Thousands of trick-or-treaters will take to the streets of Ireland tonight and Met Éireann has issued a rather sensible warning ahead of all the fun.

Taking to Twitter, the forecaster warned that wet gear will be necessary, writing:

‘Mild, cloudy & mostly dry this evening. Scattered outbreaks of rain & drizzle. Bring a brolly if trick or treating. Temps 10 to 13°C’

As for the rest of the week, a spokesperson for the forecaster told RTÉ Radio One:

“Today there will be high pressure in the southeast and this will drift away and gradually become colder, with some frost at night.

“The next few days will be cloudy with patchy rain or drizzle and later in the week the weather will turn more showery, with more risk of hail or thunder.

“Tonight it will be mostly dry but there will be some drizzle in the south of the country but in the northwest it will be persistent and it will remain mild overnight.
“We can expect lowest temperatures of 8 to 11C, with mainly moderate southwesterly breezes.”
