The weather for the rest of the weekend is a real hot and cold affair
Does it feel like it's almost the middle of October yet?
It's hard to say, given some recent sunny spells and some odd autumnal warmth.
Then again, we've had a few Status Yellow warnings this week, too, with heavy outbreaks of rain attached.
As for the rest of this specific weekend, it's... not terrible, actually.
Per the latest forecast from Met Éireann, Saturday afternoon will be a mostly cloudy affair with patchy light rain or drizzle for company across the eastern half of the country, hanging around until the evening.
It looks a bit better in the west, with sunny spells set to develop that will slowly extend eastwards throughout the day.
Got plans for today?
Rain in the NE & E this morning is clearing into the Irish Sea.
Sunny spells in the west will gradually spread across the country through the day ⛅️
Patchy drizzle will linger in eastern counties 🌧️

Generally, you can expect highest temperatures of 15 to 18 degrees with light to moderate northwesterly breezes on the horizon.
Saturday night, meanwhile, should be mostly dry with long clear spells and minimal isolated showers located mostly near northern coastlines. Lowest temperatures of four to eight degrees are expected.
Also anticipated? Potentially dense mist and fog. Now it feels like October.
As a result, Sunday morning may well look a bit misty for a while but there's a good deal of dry and settled weather on the cards, too.
Met Éireann indicates a largely dry day with sunny spells, though light showers will continue in parts of Ulster.
Highest temperatures of 13 to 15 degrees are expected.
Sunday night should follow a similar dry and clear pattern, though temperatures will drop to somewhere between four and eight degrees.
Look out for more dense mist and fog, too.
