Today's weather forecast is the one we've all been waiting for
The cold didn't bother us anyway.
It appears that Sunday is the end of the longest winter we've had in years, as temperatures are set to hit double figures for the first time in months.
According to Met Éireann, we're in for, dare we say it, a mild one.
"Dry and bright in eastern and northern areas at first this morning, but cloudy and misty conditions elsewhere, with outbreaks of rain and drizzle, will soon spread northeastwards to affect all parts," the national forecaster wrote on their website.
"Hill and coastal fog will occur also. Drier conditions will develop in the southwest later this afternoon, though it will remain misty with occasional drizzle. Top temperatures of 8 to 12 degrees Celsius in light to moderate south to southwest breezes."

Yep, 8° - 12°C is being recorded today, with similar temperatures expected for Monday.
Following a season of pretty serious storms and an elongated stretch of frost and snow, we're pretty happy with that. Let's hope that this is finally the end of winter and the introduction of sweet, sweet spring.
