After a weekend of glorious sunshine, it seems the good weather is set to continue with Met Eireann saying we are in store for a week of "settled" spring weather.

However, temperatures will plunge to freezing point and reach lows of –1 to +2 degrees after dark this week with the possibility of frost and foggy conditions.

Forecasters revealed: “Overall settled for the first week of spring with high pressure bringing mostly dry and calm conditions. Some cloud lingering in northern areas this evening, but generally dry and clear with light southeasterly breezes.”

Meanwhile, tonight will be cold and dry with mist developing as the evening progresses.

Met Eireann stated that Monday will be dry with sunny spells for the majority of the country but clouds are likely to protrude in southern counties of Munster.

Dry and sunny weather will occur from Tuesday onwards, with some clear skies allowing for frost.

Leinster is at risk of showers later in the week but most counties should be “staying dry with a mix of sunshine and cloud across the country.”While temperatures are set to peak at 8 to 12 degrees, conditions are to plummet as the weekend approaches.

Thursday and Friday look to be cooler and duller days with light northeastern breezes.

Scattered showers and patchy drizzle are possible but the country is to remain dry overall.
