We’re in for it today.
While the weather for the weekend is looking absolutely dreadful, today is not going to be pleasant either, with rain battering down on the country.
While it will be light at first, it will turn heavy later with Met Éireann saying that the wind is going to become forceful as the day goes on.

The weather forecaster said: “Today will be cloudy with patchy rain and drizzle becoming persistent from the west and turning heavy later. Winds will be moderate to fresh southeasterly and will increase strong as the day goes on. Temperatures this afternoon will range from 7 degrees in the north to 12 degrees in southern coastal counties.”
Meanwhile, “tonight heavy rain will become widespread and strong southeasterly winds will reach gale force at the coasts. Temperatures will fall to between 4 and 6 degrees.”
And you might as well not leave the house tomorrow: “Saturday, will be wet with local spot flooding as heavy rain continues through the day. Temperatures will range between 9 degrees in in the north and 13 degrees in the south. Strong southeast winds in the morning will become strong west to northwest winds in the afternoon, with the potential for damaging gusts in parts of the north later.”
