A fine spell of weather for the week ahead

Weather update from Met Éireann

Mostly fine with light breezes as high pressure dominates. Becoming warmer too. That's the latest weather outlook for the coming days.

Dry, apart from a few early morning showers with spells of sunshine gradually developing. Dry today, apart from residual showers early on across the south and east. Cloud will gradually break up to allow good spells of sunshine to follow into the afternoon and early evening. Highest temperatures of 14 to 18 degrees Celsius (north to south) in moderate northwest breezes.

Staying dry tonight under broken cloud. Cool under longer clearer spells with lowest temperatures of 3 to 9 degrees Celsius, all in a light northwesterly breeze.

Tuesday will be dry and mostly sunny across the south and east. Elsewhere it will be somewhat cloudier with possible coastal drizzle. Highest temperatures of 13 to 19 degrees Celsius, coolest along Atlantic fringes but mild in sunshine, in no more than moderate northwest breezes.

Dry and clear on Tuesday night, apart from coastal showers in the northwest. Lows of 4 to 8 degrees Celsius in light northeasterly breezes.

Wednesday is promised dry and mostly sunny, though cloudier skies across the northwest will produce some light rain or showers. Highest temperatures of 14 to 19 degrees Celsius, in just light northwest breezes with best values across the east and southeast.

Warm and sunny on Thursday again with temperatures climbing into the high teens or low 20s widely, possible higher in prolonged sunshine further south. Winds will be mostly light northerly, though coastal breezes will set in at times.

Looking ahead to Friday and the weekend, there should be little change with warm and summery conditions continuing.
