This is more like it.
As May gets underway this week, Met Éireann says we can expect some significantly milder weather than what we’ve experienced lately, with temperatures of up to 20C forecast by the weekend.
While today, Tuesday, will be cloudy, patches of mist and fog will clear to give a mainly dry day with some bright intervals and highest temperatures of 15 to 17 degrees.
There will be a little drizzle to contend with after dark but apart from that, it’ll be a mild night with lowest temperatures of 9 to 11 degrees.
“Wednesday morning will be mostly cloudy with scattered light showers, which will mostly die out by noon.” said a forecaster.
“The afternoon and evening will be brighter with some sunshine.”
Daytime temperatures of up to 18 degrees will continue on Thursday when it will be mostly cloudy with some showery rain, but with brighter intervals also.
By Friday, outbreaks of rain will gradually clear eastwards and it will brighten up with sunshine and just a few showers as temperatures continue to creep up to 18 or 19 degrees.
“It looks like the weekend will be mainly dry with sunny spells, light breezes and temperatures in the high teens and possibly touching 20 degrees at times.” said a forecaster.
