Sunny days are here again
Sunny days are here again

The weather may have cooled in recent days but the forecast for the weekend is that it will heat up again.

Met Eireann say that the weekend will be bright and mostly dry all across the country.

Today should be dry every where bar 'the odd shower' in the east of the country while the rest of the country will be dry, with the mercury set to be anywhere between 12 and 18 degrees.

Tomorrow and Sunday will bring more of the same, with that magic phrase 'good spells of sunshine'. 

If you are planning to have a barbecue then Sunday is your best bet as it is forecast to be the warmer of the two days, as they reckon it could touch 18 degrees again in the west of the country.

Across the water, the UK's Met Office are predicting that they will have a very warm sunny spell for the next THREE MONTHS, with 'near to above average temperatures' in store.

Fingers crossed they have it right.
