Temperatures are expected to hit toasty highs of 21C this week as the good weather looks set to stay. 

With many areas staying dry today, with spells of hazy sunshine and light westerly breezes, the mercruy will hover between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius.

It will be warmest and driest in the south and east, although cloud will gradually thicken in the west and north, bringing some patchy rain here by late afternoon or early evening.

Wednesday will start off dull and misty with lingering rain and drizzle across Ulster and Leinster but brighter weather will develop across the west and south during the morning.

This will extend across the country by evening with top temperatures of 16 to 20 or 21 degrees Celsius.

Rain will move in to the north and west during Thursday morning with sunny spells elsewhere. The rain will gradually become more widespread with some heavy falls but it will still remain warm, with temperatures ranging from 15 to 21 degrees Celsius.

Most areas will be dry on Friday with sunny spells and moderate northeast breezes. However, scattered showers will affect Leinster where it will feel cooler.

Temperatures will dip to between 13 and 18 degrees Celsius, and it will be mildest across the midlands and southwest.

Met Eireann said that although there will be some rain on Thursday, mostly dry, settled conditions will develop later this week and into next week too.

“There is a lot of uncertainty regarding the weather outlook for the coming weekend and confidence in the forecast is low,” the forecaster said.

“Early indications are there will be good dry periods with sunny spells and some well-scattered showers.
