Temperatures to hit 17 degrees today

Temperatures between 12-17 degrees are expected today as this spell of spring sunshine continues.

The average temperature for this time of year is around 13 degrees so enjoy it while it lasts.

South and east coasts will experience temperatures a few degrees lower than 14 to 17 degrees due to cool onshore breezes.

Tonight will be a dry night with clear spells, Met Eireann says, though it will be rather cold with a touch of grass frost in parts of the North and East.

Temperatures in those areas will be at their lowest at two or three degrees. Elsewhere, temperatures will be between four  to five degrees.

Tomorrow will bring cloud over Munster and parts of Leinster and some patchy rain in areas like Cork and Kerry. It will be brighter elsewhere, though overall, conditions will be more hazy than recent days.
