Another full week at least of sunshine and blue skies

Weather update from Met Éireann

High pressure will continue to dominate our weather with largely dry conditions and plenty of sunshine over the weekend and right through next week. Generally mild but a light to moderate east to northeast airflow will keep it coolest close to the Irish Sea. That's according to the latest weather bulletin from Met Éireann.

Any mist or fog will clear away quickly this morning to leave a largely sunny day though there will be some cloud at times, especially in the north and east at first and later in the southwest. Highest temperatures of 21 to 24 degrees in the western half of the country. Cooler further east, especially near the Irish Sea, with highest temperatures of 16 to 20 degrees in mostly moderate easterly winds.

Dry overnight with mostly clear skies. Some localised fog will develop in light easterly or variable breezes. Lowest temperatures of 5 to 10 degrees.

Another dry, mild day with plenty of sunshine tomorrow, Saturday. Cloud will bubble up at times, especially over Ulster. Highest temperatures of 18 to 24 degrees generally, coolest in the east and warmest in the west, all in light to moderate easterly breezes.

Dry and clear overnight on Saturday. Temperatures not falling below 8 to 12 degrees. Some mist and fog patches will develop in light easterly breezes.

Sunday is expected mostly sunny and dry with just some patchy cloud at times. A stray light shower couldn't be ruled out in the north. Highest temperatures ranging from 18 degrees in the east to 24 or 25 degrees in the west and southwest with light to moderate easterly winds.
