Expect an unseasonably warm Halloween as temperatures to reach 17 degrees next week
Plan your costume accordingly!
Not to sound like we're about to start complaining about "kids these days", but back in our day, Halloween used to be cold.
It is, after all, the end of October, we're heading into the depths of winter, and your costume would need to take into consideration the inevitably bad weather that would accompany that time of year.
Not so much this year, however.
As we're sure you've already noticed, the temperatures throughout October have already felt very much above average for this time of year, with the mid-to-high teens feeling like we're in mid-May.
According to the folks at Met Eireann, while it is dipping a bit this weekend, the temperatures will actually start to climb again early next week.
The evenings will see things dip to as low as 5 degrees, but during the day, particularly on Sunday, it will climb to 15 degrees.
However, following that, they'll continue to climb ever higher, getting as high as 17 degrees on Tuesday.
Admittedly, these high temperatures are all accompanied by lots of lots of rain pretty much every single day, so your primary concern is not to keep warm, but to keep dry.
Beyond Tuesday, Met Eireann states that "Current indications suggest that it will remain quite mild with spells of rain turning heavy at times."
So there you have it. A kinda warm but maybe very rainy Halloween. Spooky!
