It's almost here: those lucky enough to have tickets for this year's Electric Picnic will be beginning their exodus to Stradbally tomorrow.

Of course, there is one key question every festivalgoer has to ask, especially in Ireland in September: what's the weather going to be like?

The good news is it's not looking like it will be a washout.

Met Éireann is forecasting a dry night tomorrow, with rain likely restricted to other parts of the country.

However, they are warning of some potential rain early on Saturday.

"On Saturday morning, rain will spread to all parts of the country and will soon turn heavy in places," Met Éireann says. "Most at risk from heavy rain will be southern and southeastern areas".

AccuWeather is also highlighting the possibility of rain for the Laois area on Saturday, although it is likely to clear with only passing showers later in the evening.

Sunday, meanwhile, is forecast by Met Éireann to be a mostly dry and bright day after a few possible morning showers. AccuWeather, though, is warning of periods of rain on Sunday night.

While it's likely revellers will see some rainfall over the course of the weekend, it's looking like there'll be plenty of dry periods too.

It goes without saying, though, that you should be packing your raincoats, ponchos and wellies - this is Ireland, after all.
