Irish weather to improve next week as high pressure brings sunny spells

Get the sunnies out.

Met Éireann has predicted a positive change in the weather for the coming week with high pressure approaching the country.


After a week of miserable rainy conditions, the news of better weather will no doubt lift the nation's spirits.

Most of the gloom and drizzle is set to clear by Sunday evening, heralding the return of sunny spells from Monday. Temperatures are set to remain cool, however they will rise as the week goes on, with 18C predicted in some areas from Wednesday.

"High pressure will dominate our weather this week, bringing largely dry conditions and a good deal of sunshine," said the national forecaster. "Feeling cool at the start of the week, becoming warmer as the week goes on."
