More warm weather on the way as temperatures set to reach over 20 degrees next week

Keep this good spell coming.

It’s understandably not being discussed as much as it usually would with everything else going on, but in recent weeks, Ireland has been enjoying what must be one of the most extended spells of pleasant weather in years.

Wind and rain have barely been a feature and the sighting of farmers’ tans up and down the country – usually delayed until after two or three fine days in June, July or August – have been frequent since early April.

The last week or so has seen temperatures cool somewhat, a theme that will continue through this weekend, but there’s more warm and sunny weather on the way next week.

According to Met Éireann, this weekend will bring a mixture of bright and sunny spells and scattered showers, with temperatures generally hovering around the mid-teens.

Sunday is set to be the worst day, especially in the west and north of the country, where it will be cloudy and breezy and persistent heavy rain will become a feature later in the day.

There will also be showers on Monday, but not as heavy and at less regular intervals than on Sunday, with temperatures increasing to closer to 20 degrees.

Early signs suggest that it will be better again on Tuesday and Wednesday, with temperatures hitting the high teens and low 20s, with good sunny spells during the day and relatively mild conditions at night.

More of the same for the foreseeable please.
