It’s about time we got some sunshine.
And this weekend it looks like Mother Nature is finally giving us a break; Met Éireann says we can expect temperatures of up to 20C for much of the coming two days.
It will be dry for a time this morning with some sunny spells “but patchy rain and drizzle will soon spread from the north.” says the national forecaster. There’s a mostly cloudy evening ahead with highest temperatures ranging from 17 to 20 degrees.
Any lingering rain or drizzle overnight will clear during Saturday morning, with a “bright and fresh day with sunny spells and just the odd passing shower” in-store and top temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees.
Saturday night will stay largely dry with long clear spells and some mist patches. Forecasters note it will be “rather cool for July” with minimum temperatures of 6 to 9 degrees in mostly light breezes but Sunday looks like a decent day for the beach, beginning dry and bright with sunny spells.
“There will be a partial build-up of cloud during the day and perhaps a few well-scattered showers. Turning mostly clear and sunny again in the evening,” says Met Éireann.
After a cool start, maximum afternoon temperatures will range between 16 to 19 degrees so don’t forget the sunscreen if you’re heading for a dip in the sea.
