Better make the most of it.

Met Éireann has forecast spells of sunshine and temperatures of up to 21 degrees in the coming days before a week of rain and “unsettled conditions” next week.

There will be plenty of sunshine on the cards in the early part of this weekend with temperatures hitting above 20 degrees on Friday and Saturday. Conditions will take a turn on Sunday, however, when “persistent rain” will affect most of the country.

The warm spell will start on Thursday, a mostly dry day with sunny spells, with highest temperatures set to soar to 20 degrees in parts of the country.

Friday, meanwhile, will be warm, humid and mostly cloudy with scattered outbreaks of light rain or drizzle and highest temperatures of up to 21 degrees.

Saturday will also be warm, humid and mostly cloudy with some bright intervals. Highest temperatures will reach between 18 and 21 degrees.

On Sunday, the sunshine will unfortunately disappear as persistent rain will spread across the country throughout the day, turning heavy at times, although temperatures will remain in the high teens and reach up to 20 degrees.

Things will take another turn on Monday as conditions will be a noticeably cooler and fresher, with a mix of sunny spells and occasional heavy showers. Highest temperatures will dip to between 13 to 16 degrees.

According to the Met Éireann forecast, there will be more rain on Tuesday and Wednesday with the weather continuing unsettled for the rest of next week.

Best enjoy the good stuff while it lasts this weekend.
