The Irish Independent is reporting that Ireland's longest-serving TV weather presenter will be leaving our television screens. 

RTÉ's Evelyn Cusack won't be gracing our small screens as much as before after being promoted to a top gig at Met Éireann.

She is going to take over the role of Head of Forecasting which was held up until now by another crowd favourite, Gerald Flemming, who left the position at the end of last year. 

The announcement was confirmed to the publication and it has been said that it was only announced this week. 

A source from the forecaster said: 

"The interview for the role was last week and there was an official email recently sent out stating the decision made. 

"She will still be on TV at times during important weather announcements and such, but definitely not as much."   

She is expected to take up the role in the coming weeks. 

Evelyn's first appearance was in October 1988 meaning she has been on our screens for almost 30 years. 

We're going to miss not seeing her deliver the weather on a regular basis...
