Met Eireann says blue skies this weekend (not that you’ll see with the fog!)
This weekend is set to be dry in most parts according to Met Eireann forecasts. Unfortunately forecasters are also predicting that fog will linger in many parts.
Met Eireann says tomorrow, Saturday, will be dry in most parts, with sunny spells developing. Fog will clear gradually in most areas during the morning, but may linger on in some sheltered spots. Cloud will increase from the Atlantic, bringing a little patchy rain and drizzle to west and northwest coasts later. Maximum temperatures 9 to 12 Celsius, with slack winds.
On Saturday night dense patches of fog are forecast to develop again overnight. Otherwise the night will be generally dry and mainly frost free. Lowest temperatures of 2 to 5 degrees.
On Sunday, Met Eireann says fog will continue to linger through much of the morning, and it may not clear from some areas at all.
Otherwise, it says the day will be dry with light winds and bright conditions. Where the fog persists the day will be cold with temperatures remaining around 4 to 6 degrees. But where the skies are clear, it’ll be a mild day with temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees. Further dense fog on Sunday night as well.
Latest forecasts suggest on Monday fog patches will again linger through the morning in the east and middle part of the country.
But rain spreading from the west through the day will bring a clearance by evening. No fog on Monday night, but clear skies will lead to widespread frost and temperatures around freezing.
Met Eireann says Tuesday will be a bright fresh day with scattered showers across Connacht and west Ulster but mainly dry elsewhere. Highest temperatures of 6 to 8 degrees in moderate westerly winds.
