Great news, this dreary weather is going to feck off soon
That's a relief.
Sunday and Monday have seen a serious drop in temperatures in Ireland, as well as some ugly bouts of especially grey rain.
Thankfully, Met Éireann is forecasting a sharp improvement on matters in the coming days.
We can expect "early morning mist and fog clearing on Tuesday, to give a dry and calm day, with sunny spells". Highest temperatures will range from 15 to 19 degrees and it will be mildest in the south and southwest of the country.
The good news doesn't stop there, as temperatures will continue to improve day by day, ranging from 17 to 20 degrees on Wednesday and 18 to 22 degrees on the days thereafter, possibly higher in some parts.
On the downside, it will be chilly enough on Tuesday and Wednesday after dark when temperatures may drop to the low single figures locally. But you should be indoors by then, so it won't really matter.
Sadly, the weather will return to its current, less pleasant state next weekend, with Met Éireann hinting at conditions turning more unsettled this coming weekend and into next week.
This is still Ireland, so it's not as if we can be all that surprised.
