Met Éireann says that the weather this weekend is going to be VERY grim
We know it's gorge out at the moment, but don't get used to it lads.
Unfortunately, Met Éireann predicts that the weather over the weekend won't be great.
On Friday, it will be mostly cloudy in the southwest and west and with the chance of patchy rain in west Munster. Largely dry elsewhere with long clear spells and just patchy cloud. Minimum temperatures of 3 to 7 degrees in moderate to fresh southeasterly winds.
Current indications suggest it will be rather cloudy in Munster and Connacht on Saturday with the chance of rain in Atlantic coastal areas.
However, elsewhere across the country it is expected to remain dry with sunny spells. Highest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees in moderate to fresh southeast winds. On Saturday night, rain is expected to develop across much of Munster and Connacht but it will stay dry elsewhere. Minimum temperatures of 3 to 7 degrees in brisk southeasterly winds.
Rain will affect parts of the south and west at times on Sunday but it looks set to hold dry in most other areas with mostly cloudy skies.
A cold day with highest temperatures of just 6 to 9 degrees in a brisk southeast wind. Cold and breezy overnight with outbreaks of rain in the south and west. Lowest temperatures of 3 to 6 degrees.
Latest indications suggest the early days of next week will be cold and showery with persistent rain at times. There will be a brisk east or southeasterly air-flow with temperatures a few degrees below the April average.
So yeah. Cold and miserable for most of the weekend.
If you need us, we'll be indoors watching Netflix.
