Ireland is set to soak up the sunshine with highs of 18 degrees this week before it turning cooler and unsettled on Easter Sunday. 

Highest temperatures today will range from 14 to 17 degrees, feeling cooler along Atlantic coastlines. Sunny spells are expected in the east, but it is to be cloudy with patchy showers elsewhere this afternoon.

However, Met Éireann has also issued a small craft warning for Monday and Tuesday as “southwest winds will reach force 6 or higher at times today (Monday) on all Irish coasts.”

It will be cloudy and mostly dry tonight as the rain will clear apart from some drizzle in the west of the country. Met Éireann predicts that clear spells are to develop in the southeast, with some mist patches as temperatures will fall to lows of four to six degrees.

Tomorrow will have the best of the weather with sunny spells, feeling mild with balmy highs of 15 to 18 degrees. It is likely to feel slightly cooler in the northwest due to southwesterly winds, with clouds and patches of drizzle also expected in these areas.

The final day of March, Wednesday, will see temperatures drop to nine to 13 degrees but may be warmer in the southeast. Southeastern counties can also expect sunny spells, but the rest of the country will remain mostly cloudy with occasional showers.

The forecaster added that on Wednesday, “outbreaks of rain and drizzle in the northwest will persist through the morning and gradually break up during the afternoon, with just occasional patchy rain and drizzle elsewhere.”

It's predicted to remain dry towards the end of the week, with sunny spells expected on Thursday and Friday. However, while we can enjoy temperatures of 10 to 13 degrees and 14 to 17 degrees in the southwest on Thursday, Friday will feel significantly cooler with “moderate northerly breezes.”

Easter weekend is set to be cloudy and dry, although a forecaster expects more “unsettled” weather this Sunday with some frost at night and April showers on their way in the following days.
