Scattered showers will continue to move across Ireland today but forecasters insist that the mild weather front, covering the country, will stay put. 

While temperatures in parts of the UK are expected to hit lows -10C in the coming weeks, in Ireland, for now, the mild conditions will continue.

A 1,000 mile-wide weather event known as the Norwegian Barrage is expected to land just short of the south of Ireland this weekend.

But according to Met Éireann, mild autumnal conditions will continue, marred only by continuing scattered showers.

“We are predicting just a few showers in the east and south of the country for this morning,” a forecaster told The Sunday World.

“Those showers will become more scattered in the afternoon and you have probably seen the worst of those this morning.

“We expect those to clear up later on with pleasant, mild conditions continuing.

“You can expect largely dry conditions for Friday and into the weekend however there will be scattered showers and breezier conditions.

“Highest temperatures of 11 or 12 degrees in light easterly breezes."
