It’s time to get your sunnies out and stock up on sun cream because spring has well and truly sprung!
Met Eireann have said that this week “each day will be brighter or sunnier than the day before”, with the warmest weather expected to fall at the weekend.
Although there will be some short outbreaks of rain today, it’s not expected to stay around for too long.
“Mostly cloudy with scattered outbreaks of rain in the west spreading eastwards today. Rain will be heaviest and most persistent in parts of west Munster and west Connacht.” said a forecaster.
“Areas of mist and hill and coastal fog will occur also. Highest temperatures 11 to 15C with fresh to strong and gusty southerly winds, veering westerly later with the clearing rain.
“Tuesday will be mainly dry with sunny spells apart from a few light passing showers in the north.”
Temperatures will rise as the week goes on, and are expected to peak at the weekend.
“Wednesday will see a risk of a few showers on northern coasts but otherwise it will be a dry day with bright or sunny spells.” they added.
“Thursday and Friday will be similar days, light westerly winds on Thursday will become variable in direction on Friday, and each day will be brighter or sunnier than the day before, with dry weather persisting and temperatures slowing rising by a degree or so each day.
“By the weekend sunshine should be established and temperatures will be on the rise as winds become light southerly in direction.”
Enjoy the sunny weather while it lasts!
