Ireland's best-loved weather presenter was caught off guard in her forecast to the nation this evening.

Evelyn Cusack was caught in a rather wistful pose as she stared off into the distance while the cameras rolled.

Seeemingly unaware that she was being filmed for the RTE broadcast, Ms Cusack failed to deliver her report.

The forecaster was at the Bloom in the Park garden festival at Phoenix Park when the unfortunate gaffe occurred.

Spectators of the broadcast at the event, who were still being instructed on their behaviour in front of the lens, also seemed unaware that they were live.

The 'frozen' images lasted for about 30 seconds before the station decided to take an ad break.

Last month, Ms Cusack was voted the nation’s favourite forecaster with a 21pc majority in a poll carried out by Dulux Weathershield and Ipsos MRBRI.
