Watch - Weather forecasters expect remnants of Hurricane Humberto to impact

Make the most of the weather because next's week climate will be very different from the summer conditions of recent days with the remnants of a hurricane likely to impact.

The balmy conditions are expected to break down over the weekend coming according to Met Éireann's official weather forecasting partner in the UK the Met Office.

The forecasters latest 10-day prediction is for unsettled weather to replace the warm and sunny weather because of a change in the jet stream. 

Sunday is set to be a very differant day with cooler windy weather on the way. Heavy rain is also on the cards for this weekend.

The remnants of Hurricane Umberto are also set to reach Ireland by next week. It will then be a normal Atlantic low pressure system. More Met Éireann forecast below tweet.
