Cork’s final summer weekend is set to be a pleasant one, with clear skies and sunny spells expected. Although the day started with showers across the Rebel County, these are predicted to pass after lunchtime. According to the national forecaster, this will be the most rain the region will see in the coming days. Temperatures today will range from 15C to 17C, with a peak of 19C in the mid to late afternoon. Clearing up by 2 pm, the rest of the day will be characterized by cloudy skies occasionally interrupted by spells of sunshine.
Looking ahead to the weekend, temperatures will reach around 20C, although it is worth noting that the main highlight is the lack of rainfall. After weeks of continuous rain, this is a great opportunity for Leesiders to enjoy some outdoor activities before summer comes to an end. While conditions will remain cloudy, there will be occasional sunny spells to brighten up the weekend.
For those attending Electric Picnic next weekend, the weather remains uncertain. Whether we will experience good weather or face a repeat of the mud pools at the All Together Now festival is still up in the air. It might be wise to pack a pair of good wellies, just in case.
