The outlook for the weather just gets better and better.

The good news starts later today with the news that once the fog clears the day will be warm and sunny, with parts of the country getting temperatures of between 17 and 19 C, but it will feel cooler in the east.

Tomorrow and Thursday will be cloudier, cooler and there will be risks of showers across both days but things take a positive turn come Friday.

Met Eireann say that a milder spell will hit us for a few days, with temperatures hitting the mid to high teens, and some spots will hit 20C over the weekend.

Light winds and mild night time temperatures mean it should be a great weekend, but there is a risk of the odd thundery shower among the sunshine.
