We are delighted to invite you to RTE’s live TV series entitled “Weather Live”.

WEATHER LIVE  is an entertainment/factual show on RTÉ One exploring Ireland’s favourite obsession – the weather.  This series will be broadcast between 7pm and 8pm after the RTE  6 O’clock news and aimed at a family audience. Please note that audience must be at the Botanic Gardens prior to the recording.

Presenter Kathryn Thomas will be joined each night by a host of live studio guests and Met Éireann weather forecasters, amongst them Gerald Fleming, Aengus Mac Grianna and Colin Stafford-Johnson, to find out what makes the Irish climate so unique.  From The Beast from the East to Ireland’s latest heatwaves, the show will sort fact from fiction and uncover how weather affects our everyday lives.
