St Patrick's day weather predictions for Northern Ireland

With parades, outdoor concerts and festivities planned across Northern Ireland - what kind of weather are we expecting for St Patrick's day?

Northern Ireland's changeable weather makes it hard to predict exactly what the day will bring but it is looking positive for Friday, March 17.

The Met Office has said it is looking like the day will be "mainly cloudy with rain at times" but that the week is expected to bring changeable weather.

It will also be quite breezy as well.

The Met Office Forecaster said: "Generally it looks like it will be mainly cloudy with rain at times and quite a breezy day as well.

"It will be quite a fresher strong west to south westerly wind which may ease down later in the day

"It probably won't be overly wet but there will be rain at times.

"It will be generally on the mild side temperature wise about 10 or 11.

"Quite a changeable week day by day."

In Belfast on Friday there will be the annual St Patrick's Day parade leaving city hall from 12pm.

It will make its way to Custom House Square where the concert will start at 12.45pm.

This year’s concert line-up includes headline act and X Factor runner-up, Fleur East. She will be supported by Reggie ‘n’ Bollie and Stooshe.

There will also be drumming talent from the Belfast Boys’ Model and traditional tunes from band The Rare Aul Stuff.
