Weather forecast for Halloween doesn’t bode well for Dublin trick-or-treaters

Darragh Murphy

It seems that trick-or-treaters in Dublin will have to brave heavy rain this Halloween.

It’s a wet and miserable morning in the capital and the weather doesn’t look like it will improve until very late tonight.

The heaviest rain is expected to arrive in the evening, which is when a lot of kids are brought out trick-or-treating by their parents.

“Today will be cloudy with patchy outbreaks of rain and drizzle through the morning and early afternoon,” a Met Eireann spokesperson said.

“Later in the evening the rain will turn heavier and more persistent. Highest temperatures will be 12 or 13 °C in moderate to fresh southeast winds.

“Tonight will continue cloudy with the rain easing for a time later in the night. Lowest temperatures will be 7 or 8 °C. The southeast winds will be generally moderate, occasionally fresh and veering moderate southwest by morning.

“Tomorrow, Friday, will see further outbreaks of rain. Heavy and showery in nature and widespread through the day. Temperatures will range between 13 and 15 °C. Winds will be moderate to fresh southwest to south becoming fresh to strong southwesterly later.”

It’s not too late to add an umbrella to your Halloween costume!
