Sunny weather in store for the weekend with dry and clear spells Met Éireann forecasts

Temperatures will range between 13-17 degrees and it will be coolest in the east

Sunny, dry and bright spells will be the order of the weekend as high pressure will keep Ireland mostly dry and clear for the next week.

The weather across the weekend and much of next week will remain settled with mostly dry and clear spells and just well scattered showers at times thanks to the band of high pressure close to Ireland.

Saturday will be predominantly dry with a mix of cloud and sunny spells with the chance of just a small few isolated showers near southern coasts. Highest temperatures will range from 13-17 degrees, coolest in the east.

“Sunday will again be dry and bright with lengthy spells of Spring sunshine in most areas. Highest temperatures of 14-17c, but again coolest along the Eastern coast,” the forecaster said.

“Little change is expected during the next week as high pressure remains positioned close to Ireland bringing mostly dry and settled weather."

Monday will be slightly cooler with highs of 11-15c but again there will be very little chance of rain. The eastern sea board will be the coolest once again and temperatures are set to dip on Monday evening ahead of a cold night where temperatures will flirt with freezing and should range from 1-4c.

Tuesday will be a similar day with sunny spells in the morning but cloud will increase through the afternoon and a few light showers are expected to developing in the afternoon as temperatures again hit the mid teens.

There will be little change through the middle of next week with mostly dry conditions but it is likely to get a little cooler and unsettled later in the week.

Current forecasts from Met Éireann are for two more largely dry days on Wednesday and Thursday with temperatures in the mid teens in the afternoon and just the slightest chance of showers.
