The official weather forecast for Electric Picnic is here

Just one more sleep until Electric Picnic.

For those of you making your way down to Stradbally this weekend Electric Picnic you will need to be prepared for all sorts of weather. Nuala Carey from RTÉ has brought a special weather report for the festival and if ever there was a case of 'mixed weather' then this weekend is just that.


Nuala says on Friday it will be mainly dry but there still is a risk of a few light showers. Temperatures will reach 19 degrees.

Then on Saturday you will need your wellies because Nuala says it will be wet for a time with rain expected. She added that it would be a little bit cooler on Saturday night so make sure to bring something warm for the evening time.

But it's not all bad news, though, the dry weather will return on Sunday and temperatures will be as high as 18 or 19 degrees.

Met Éireann has issued the following forecast for Saturday:

"On Saturday morning, rain will spread to all parts of the country and will soon turn heavy in places. Most at risk from heavy rain will be southern and southeastern areas, although some heavy falls may also occur later in the west and north.

Winds on Saturday may be fresh or strong at times in southern counties as the direction swings from southerly to westerly during the day; however, winds elsewhere will be mostly light throughout.

On Saturday night, rain will clear to showers and cloud will break, while winds veer west to northwest, light to moderate."

Have a great weekend!
