It’s a balmy 15C in parts of Cork today.
But Met Éireann is predicting some slightly less spring-like conditions for the weekend, with ‘noticeably cooler’ temperatures from tonight until Monday.
According to forecasters, Friday will another dry day for most, but it will be cloudier than recent days, with the odd spot of light rain or drizzle and highest temperatures of between 9C and 11C.
If you’re planning to venture outside your 5km travel limit for the first time this year, the good news is that Saturday will be dry too, although the best of the sunshine will be over the eastern half of the country through the morning.
“Outbreaks of rain and drizzle will start to push into Atlantic counties by the afternoon, however, edging slowly eastwards over the country during the evening.” said a forecaster. Highs will range between 9C and 12C.
Sunday will be cloudy with outbreaks of rain and drizzle, patchy mist and some hill and coastal fog, with brief sunny spells likely in the south.
While Monday will be dull and drizzly too, things are looking up from Tuesday on: “It looks as though high pressure will become re-established through midweek next week, bringing mostly dry and settled weather with temperatures trending near average.” said a Met Éireann forecaster.
