Over the weekend for both Saturday and Sunday there will be rather nice bright and Sunny spells with temperatures only as high 6C to 10C. Some showers will be possible near northwestern and northern coastal areas but elsewhere will remain dry.
Saturday and Sunday night will be chilly with frost on both nights with lows of around 0C to -1C on Saturday and then lows of -2C to -3C in places on Sunday night.
The weather forecast for the Dublin Marathon is for bright and sunny spells with temperatures between 8C to 10C so if you are going to spectate the event it would be wise to wrap up.
The GFS model has the colder air sticking with us here in Ireland until later next week with a lot of dry weather but the ECMWF model brings another area of low pressure up from the south Tuesday and Wednesday next week so the outlook from Tuesday on is yet very uncertain.
With the area of low pressure moving up from the south it brings milder air but then at the end of next week the ECMWF brings cooler conditions back.
Bank holiday Monday at this stage looks like a rather nice autumn day with good bright and sunny spell with only the odd light shower near northwestern coastal counties. Over night again looks rather cold with the risk of frost and icy patches with temperatures as low as -1C to -2C. Some mist and fog also possible.
I will have another update on the outlook for next week over the bank holiday weekend and updates can also be found on the National and daily forecasts on the website which i have attached the link below.
