Here's what the weather is looking like for the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival

It’s almost here! Can you hear the music yet?

The countdown has begun Leeside to the 2015 Cork Guinness Jazz festival which runs from Thursday October 22 to Monday October 26 and if you’re planning on making a trip down over the Bank Holiday Weekend, it’s time to start getting excited.

It’s going to be a stormer of a weekend whatever the weather but it’s always good to be prepared so here’s what’s in store for Cork City over the four days of the Jazz.

Friday will see intermittent showers for pretty much the whole day as rain sweeps in from the west but we’re wont let that dampen our spirits as Jazz weekend kicks off in earnest.

And as Friday night fades into Saturday morning, the rain will be sticking around like but that will give any sore heads an excuse for a lie in.

Don’t be snoozing too long though or you’ll miss all the fun! As Cork gears up for another evening of musical delights, the clouds will clear and the sun is even rumoured to make a surprise appearance Saturday evening.

It will be a clear night for revellers taking to the streets to dance into the wee hours of Sunday morning but it will be a bit chilly with nighttime temperatures of around 6C.

And it looks like the rain will hold off Sunday as well. It will be a partly cloudy day with temperatures of around 11C and some brief sunny spells.

It looks like it’s going to be a blue Monday as stormy weather returns. Drizzle will set in, becoming more persistent as the day goes in with some blustery winds as well.

Our advice? Find yourself a nice snug and hunker down listening to the best music the city has to offer as the finest musical weekend of the year comes to a close.
