Halloween weekend weather to see abnormally high temperatures and sunny spells
Spooky season, spooky weather.
The Halloween weekend is fast approaching and unlike many other years, it's not set to be overcome by wind, rain and cold breezes - well, mostly.
With the forecasts officially coming in, it seems we'll be getting some sunny spells and higher temperatures than normal for this time of year.
With the blast of heat likely being the last of 2022, Friday will see sunny spells and scattered showers, some of which are expected to be heavy.
The showers are set to be most frequent in the west and drier in the southwest, with temperatures of 14 to 17 degrees.
Friday night will start out with clear spells before "rain will develop in the southwest, extending along southern coasts, then slowly pushing northwards. Lowest temperatures of 9 to 11 degrees in mostly moderate south to southeast winds."
Rain will be heavy at times on Saturday morning with a risk of flooding but will clear northwards by the early morning, with temperatures of 13 to 16 degrees.
Most places will be dry on Saturday night and there will be a chance of heavier showers on the south and east coasts, with thunderstorms likely.
Sunny spells make their way across the country on Sunday alongside some heavy showers which are set to become widespread by the afternoon.
Met Eireann said: "Highest temperatures of 13 to 15 degrees in moderate to fresh south to southwest winds, strong at times in the afternoon and around showers.
"Current indications suggest the weather remains unsettled for Bank Holiday Monday and early next week with further spells of rain or showers. It'll be windy at times and temperatures are expected to fall back a few degrees to the more seasonal average."
