The weekend has started off on a positive note in most parts of Cork today, with dry and sunny weather. However, the good weather is not expected to last throughout the day. While Met Éireann does not anticipate anything as severe as last week’s Storm Antoni, they have forecasted another day of rain for Cork. So, it’s advisable to carry an umbrella when leaving the house today, just in case.
Today’s weather in Cork will consist of a mix of sunny spells and scattered showers. Although the rain showers are not expected to be significant in most areas, Met Éireann has warned that some showers may be severe. The temperatures will range between 17-20°C, providing a nice opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in between the showers. The winds are expected to be moderate to fresh from the southwest, unlike the strong gusts experienced last week.
Moving on to tonight, the weather will be similar, but with slightly less rain. It is expected to remain mostly clear and dry, with temperatures not dropping below 11-14°C. The wind will also ease off slightly.
Looking ahead to tomorrow, the forecast for Cork remains a mixed bag with sunny spells and scattered showers throughout the day. However, the rain is predicted to become more persistent in the evening. Therefore, if you have plans for a Sunday outing, it would be wise to schedule it for the early afternoon to avoid the worsening weather conditions.
In summary, while the weekend in Cork may not be entirely rain-free, there will still be opportunities to enjoy some dry and sunny periods. It is advisable to stay prepared with an umbrella and plan outdoor activities accordingly.
