Mostly dry weather is on the cards for Ireland this week as temperatures are set to rise to 17 degrees, according to Met Éireann.
Its national forecast for the week says conditions will be "mild and quite settled with low amounts of rainfall".
On Wednesday, most areas are expected to stay dry but cloud will gradually increase over the western half of the country throughout the day, bringing patchy light rain or drizzle to west Connacht and west Munster.
This is as highest temperatures of 12 to 16 degrees are forecasted.
Thursday is also set to be "mostly dry with sunny spells and just isolated showers".
However, some drizzle may drift into the southwest as highest temperatures range from 13 to 17 degrees.
As for Friday, the forecast states it will be a breezy day with variable cloud cover and some sunny spells.
Cloudiest conditions are expected in the south, bringing scattered outbreaks of light rain, but there will just be isolated light showers everywhere else.
Highest temperatures of 13 to 16 degrees are anticipated.
Moving onto the weekend, most areas are set to be dry at first on Saturday with some sunny intervals.
However, conditions are forecasted to get cloudier in the late morning and afternoon with scattered showers developing, before the weather turns dry again in most areas by the evening.
Highest temperatures of 12 to 15 degrees are predicted.
Sunday, meanwhile, is currently looking "mostly dry and sunny" with highest temperatures of 13 to 17 degrees, though there may be showers in the southwest.
Met Éireann says the mild and settled weather could last until early next week.
