Pope Francis could experience some of that classic Irish weather this weekend as he arrives at the coast for the World Meeting of Families.
According to Metire, we can expect some sunny spells, heavy showers and even hail and thunder in the coming days.
The Pope arrives Saturday morning in Dublin, where he is received by fine conditions with only a chance of an occasional shower during the day.
Rain is expanding westward for the Pope's visit to Knock on Sunday morning and 8 millimeters of rain is forecasted for 7 hours & # 39; in the morning.
Looking at the main event on Sunday, when 500,000 people will attend Mass at Phoenix Park, Met Éireann predicts heavy rain.
7.4 millimeters of rain is expected to arrive in the park at 1 pm, but this will clear up in the afternoon, with temperatures rising to high teens.
As far as today's weather is concerned, most areas in the afternoon may expect dry conditions, although rainfall will continue to exist for Connacht and South and East Leinster.
Most of the morning have the most sunny spells, although showers are expected in Connacht and Ulster, some of which will be heavy and possibly thunderstorms. It will be dry with sunny periods in Leinster and dry in Munster.
