It looks like it's going to be pretty good for the race....temperature in the low teens and a very light westerly wind. It would seem as if there will be a weak weather front to the south of the country so it might be a bit hit or miss whether it is cloudy or not. There is a chance of some rain but it would seem to be unlikely......I hope! So fingers crossed, it looks like it's going to be an ideal day :o)
Update Sun 7:00am....the weak front that was supposed to pass to the south is currently crossing the southern half of the country. Probably more cloudly than expected. There is a bit of light rain to the north-west of Cork at present.
