You'll be glad to hear that the fine weather we've been experiencing is expected to persist for the rest of the week.

Yep, these fine days we're having are expected to continue into the weekend, with temperatures remaining relatively high in many places around the country. 

Over the past few days we've hit temperatures of almost 20 degrees in places, which is high for this time of year. 

And according to Met Eireann temperatures are to remain high until Sunday. 

Dense fog which will develop later tonight will gradually clear tomorrow morning to give way to another dry, fine day with good sunny spells. 

After a cool start becoming very mild by early afternoon with top temperatures of 14 to 17 or 18 degrees, along with a light easterly breeze. 

On Wednesday night, patches of mist will form and will thicken into fog in places, possibly leading to hazardous driving conditions. Temperatures will drop to between 3 and 7 degrees, with the possibility of some grass frost in some rural areas. 

Thursday will be dry also, with a mixture of sunny spells and occasional cloudy periods. Top temperatures will be in the mid to high teens, in light to moderate easterly or variable breezes. It will be cold overnight, with patches of mist, fog and grass frost expected. Lowest temperatures 2 to 5 degrees.  

On Friday, the weather will stay dry and bright, with further sunny spells at times. Top temperatures 14 to 18 degrees. Another cold night is expected for Friday night, with temperatures dropping to between 1 and 5 degrees, with a widespread grass frost and also some patches of mist and fog. 

Saturday looks like staying dry, with sunny spells at times, but with a general increase in cloud, so cooler than of late. There are some signs that the weather may turn more unsettled from late Sunday night or early Monday onwards into next week.
