You might not need to get out that winter coat just yet.

Met Éireann has forecasted a “well above average” week as temperatures are set to soar to 20 degrees.

The weather experts said that conditions will be milder from midweek with values well above average, although, there will be some persistent falls of rain across Atlantic counties.

Tuesday will start with sunshine and scattered showers – some of which will be heavy.

However, it will be mostly dry later as showers become lighter and more isolated and temeperatures reach highs of 15 degrees.

Wednesday will see scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle as well as some hill and coastal fog. Longer drier spells will develop in parts later with some brighter spells breaking through.

The day will be mostly very mild and humid with highest temperatures of between 15 to 18 degrees.

There will be another dull day with outbreaks of rain, heavy and persistent across Atlantic counties on Thursday with some brighter spells across the midlands and east where it will stay driest.

Conditions will remain warm and humid though with highest temperatures of up to 20 degrees.

Outbreaks of rain will continue into Friday, the heaviest of it likely to persist across Atlantic counties with the ongoing risk of localised flooding as temperatures climb to highs of 19 degrees yet again.

Outbreaks of rain will lighten through the day on Saturday and will gradually clear eastwards into the Irish Sea.

Low cloud will lift with some brighter spells developing from the west and highest temperatures of between 15 to 18 degrees.

Sunday will be mostly dry with sunny spells and temperatures of between 13 to 16 degrees.
