The Irish weather forecast is looking rather scary for Halloween and the coming weekend.
The remnants of Tropical Storm Pablo is set to bring heavy rain and high winds to the Emerald Isle as the Irish weather forecast monitors it travel across the Atlantic.
Classified as a ‘hurricane’ earlier this week, Pablo’s status has now weakened to ‘Tropical Storm,’ but weather experts believe it will still have an impact on Ireland.
Neither trick nor treat!
The month of October will come to an end today under a band of drizzle, fog and damp for most of Ireland.
