Weather to improve during the week following windy weekend

Things are looking up on the weather front.

Remember those few weeks during lockdown where it seemed as though it was going to be sunny forever?

Well, sadly, it was not.

Just last weekend, we saw weather warning after weather warning, and very little sun.

But fear not, as things are looking up this week.

Met Éireann has said that Tuesday will be cloudy in most areas, with scattered outbreaks of rain and drizzle, though clear spells will develop later in the day.

Wednesday will be better again, with "good dry intervals in the northern half of the country", as well as some bright spells developing, especially in the north and northwest.

Thursday will then be mainly dry, with some bright or sunny spells developing, especially in the northern half of the country, but cloudier in the south.

And finally Friday will be dry in most areas, with sunny spells, but a few scattered showers are likely, mainly in Ulster. Maximum temperatures of 14 to 18 degrees Celsius are to be expected, in light northwesterly breezes.

Well that makes for some relatively positive reading, doesn't it?

At least we're not being warned of constant wind for the week anyway. We'll take it.
