Weather charts for October 23 are "off the scale" with a huge area of high pressure forecast to setup in the Atlantic which will block off the Jet Stream and our usual unsettled Autumn weather, according to

Forecaster Alan O'Reilly said: "This could see cooler than normal weather next week but whether it will bring that cooler air over Ireland or stay out East is a little uncertain, however interesting to watch.

"For now though after some rain on Tuesday the weather will mainly settle down with a mild weekend.

"Cool nights ahead though for the next few nights with a risk of fog and frost."
