Met Éireann have updated their weather forecast for the week and it is even better than we hoped for
We could be looking at the highest temperatures of the year so far!
Guys and gals... try to remain calm... but it looks like we're in for some fantastically great weather over the majority of the next week.
Unlike the majority of the good weather we've had lately, the east of the country will actually be experiencing the lowest temperatures due to prevailing winds coming in from that coast, and Dublin and some neighbouring counties might actually have to deal with some thunderstorms early next week.
Here is the full forecast the majority of the next week, as per Met Éireann:
WEDNESDAY 23 MAY
A dry, bright and warm day with long spells of sunshine. Maximum temperatures generally 17 to 22 degrees Celsius with light east to southeast breezes. A little cooler along eastern coasts though with values of only 14 to 16 Cesius here due to onshore breezes.
THURSDAY 24 & FRIDAY 25 MAY
Thursday and Friday will see a good deal of dry weather with good sunshine. However some showers will break out in some central areas on Thursday afternoon and showers could occur on parts of the east coast later Friday. Light north or northeasterly breezes, moderate around the coasts and variable in Sea breezes with afternoon highs of 16 to 21 degrees Celsius.
SATURDAY 26 MAY
Warm on Saturday and becoming more humid with highs of 20 or 21 degrees Celsius, but about 16 or 17 degrees in some eastern areas. Most places will be dry, some sunny spells but there will be more cloud about with the risk of some scattered showers.
SUNDAY 27 & MONDAY 28 MAY
Latest indications suggest warm and very humid conditions on Sunday and Monday with temperatures in the low to mid-twenties in mostly moderate easterly breezes and muggy at night. Many places will be dry but some thundery outbreaks are likely to occur at times.
