This is not a drill.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that winter is officially going on forever, but it looks like Mother Nature is finally about to give us a blessed break.
While today will continue mostly cloudy in Cork, with patchy mist and drizzle and a few showers, there’s a noticeable rise in the temperature with highs of 11 to 15 degrees.
Fifteen degrees imagine! You can finally take off your scarf.
Misty and mostly cloudy, with just a few bright or short sunny spells. But some showery rain will affect parts of Munster and south Leinster. Top temperatures 10 to 14 C., in light to moderate easterly breezes, with the best values in the southwest of the country. pic.twitter.com/GrQwXxeUpn

According to Met Eireann, tomorrow will begin dull and cloudy but a few sunny breaks are possible later in the day as temperatures remain mild.
It’s next week that holds the most promise however; the national forecaster is predicting a strong southerly flow will develop, bringing above normal temperatures for the time of year.
Ireland will even be warmer than Madrid this weekend – we’ll be basking in temperatures five degrees above their paltry 10C.
