Here's what he expects from the elements over the next few days:

Saturday

Conditions on Saturday are likely to be overcast and wet in all areas of the country, as the remnants of ex-tropical storm Debby cross the country from the south-west. The rain will be heavy and persistent at times, especially through the afternoon and evening, before gradually clearing from Atlantic coastal counties in the late evening. Feeling humid, with highest temperatures of 18-22 degrees Celsius in mainly fresh and at times gusty southwesterly winds.
