If you’re sweating into your Aran jumper this morning, you’re not alone.
Rest assured you can cast aside the winter thermals for another week or so – temperatures will hit a balmy 21C in some parts of the country this week.
Cork will remain unseasonably mild for the coming days, with temperatures of between 15C and 17C in the city and county.
It’ll be windy and blustery with the odd patch of drizzle throughout Monday, remaining humid.
According to Met Eireann, Wednesday will be “very mild or even warm locally, with highest temperatures ranging 16 to 20 or 21 degrees Celsius.”
Blustery today with strengthening south or southwest winds. Rain will affect parts of north Connacht and Ulster at times but it will be largely dry elsewhere with just the odd shower and a few sunny spells. Top temperatures of 14 to 16 degrees. pic.twitter.com/oJW5Jof6st

The national forecaster says “Most areas will hold dry with sunny spells, though some showers may present across the southwest of Munster and the west of Connacht around evening time. Southeast winds will be moderate, occasionally fresh in strength.”
Guess we can leave the fire unlit for another few days.
