Heavy rain and flooding to hit Dublin as weather in the capital changes dramatically

At least temperatures will pick up for the next few days.

Met Eireann is predicting a dramatic change in the weather over the coming days with heavy rain and even flooding.

The freezing cold nights of the week gone will be no more with temperatures rising during the wet spell - writes dublinlive.ie.

Luckily Friday will be mainly dry but into tonight rain will start to move across the capital.

A Met Eireann forecaster said: "Frost this morning, will gradually clear as winds begin to freshen.

"Becoming windy through the day, with strong and gusty southeasterly winds developing. Mainly dry for daylight hours with variable cloud cover.

"Afternoon temperatures will range 6 to 8 degrees Celsius.

"A spell of heavy persistent rain will continue to move eastwards this evening and early tonight, with the risk of spot flooding later.

"Still rather windy in fresh and gusty southeast winds. Low cloud and mist in parts too. Frost free with lowest temperatures ranging 5 to 8 degrees Celsius."

Saturday morning will again be a very wet one with a similarly high risk of spot flooding.

The forecaster said: "A wet start on Saturday, with further outbreaks of rain.

"The rain will be persistent for much of the day with local spot flooding, as well as fresh onshore winds up along the east coast.

"Highest temperatures will range a cool and damp 6 to 8 degrees Celsius."

That rain will persist on Sunday before the temperatures drop again next week.

The forecaster added: "Unsettled, wet and windy later Sunday into Sunday night; much colder into next week with brisk westerly winds and wintry showers."
