Cork looks set for stormy Halloween this year with Met Éireann predicting a wet and windy October 31 this year.

While Covid-19 restrictions mean there will be few trick-or-treaters out and about on Saturday, it looks like there will be plenty of wind and rain.

The national meteorological service has warned that Saturday will be wet and possibly stormy with widespread and often heavy rain continuing through the day.

Saturday will see a mild start with highest temperatures of 14 to 16 degrees but it will become cooler through the afternoon with strong southerly winds veering westerly through the day.

A further spell of wet and windy conditions will spread from the southwest to all areas overnight on Saturday, with some strong and gusty south to southwest winds.

While the rain will clear slightly on Sunday morning, it will return in the afternoon becoming heavy and more persistent in southern areas once again.

The horror!
