Met Eireann are predicting temperatures will soar in the early days of next week as the country looks set to bathe in warm and dry weather.
It will be significantly cooler this week than in recent days but we won’t be waiting long for the hot conditions to return.
Meanwhile today will be largely dry to start with before showers start to move across the country, with highs of up to 17C.
A Met Eireann forecaster said: “A largely dry start this morning with a good deal of cloud. It will be a cool and fresh day with just occasional sunny intervals. Scattered showers will mainly affect eastern coastal counties, with the chance of more prolonged showers there later in the day. Showers will be more isolated further west. Highest temperatures of just 13 to 17 degrees, cooler in the north and northwest, in moderate to fresh northerly winds.
“Showers continuing for a time tonight in the east and southeast. Staying mostly dry elsewhere with good clear spells developing and just the odd stray shower. Lowest temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees in light to moderate northerly breezes.
“Tomorrow will be a mix of cloud and sunny spells. Scattered showers will develop but becoming largely dry and sunny by the evening. Highest temperatures of 14 to 18 degrees in light to moderate northeasterly breezes, fresher on southeastern coasts.
“A dry night with good clear spells. Lowest temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees in a light to moderate northerly breeze.”
And from Sunday onwards the national outlook is for conditions to be mixed initially with some showers, before it becomes more settled with plenty of “good sunshine”.
Monday will see temperatures turn a corner before it ramps up even further from Tuesday with highs in the mid-20s at times, and there will be plenty of dry conditions as a warm weather system moves in.
A forecaster added: “Largely dry on Sunday with cloud building up during the morning mixed with some sunshine. A few well scattered showers will likely develop. There is a chance of rain developing in southern and southeastern areas. Highest temperatures of 16 to 20 degrees generally, possibly reaching 21 degrees in the south, in light to moderate northerly breezes.
“A largely dry night with mostly clear skies with just isolated showers. Lowest temperatures of 7 to 11 degrees. Mist and hill fog will develop in light northerly breezes.
“Good sunny spells on Monday and mostly dry with just some light isolated showers developing. There is the chance of some heavy showers moving into the southeast during the day. Highest temperatures of 18 to 23 degrees, cooler in the north and northwest in light to moderate northerly breezes.
