There will be sunny spells and scattered showers today (Friday, October 23rd), mainly in the west and north, according to Met Éireann.

Temperatures will reach 9 to 13 degrees before dropping between 6 to 9 degrees.

It will become wet and windy, especially across southern and western counties. Rain will cross the country eastwards overnight, heaviest in western areas, with a risk of spot flooding.

Saturday 

Rain will fall in eastern areas, tomorrow morning, before clearing to squally showers.

Some showers will be heavy with hail, possibly thundery, according to the national forecaster. It will be a blustery day with fresh and gusty south-west winds and highs of 10 to 13 degrees.

Sunday

Met Éireann predicts that a steering low will feed in blustery, thundery showers with a risk of hail, most frequent across Atlantic counties.
