According to the latest Met Eireann weather forecast for Ireland, the weather will be turning warmer and largely dry for the weekend with temperatures set to soar although there will be some cloud around on Saturday in places with the odd shower.
However you should enjoy the good weather while it lasts as Met Eireann is warning that early indications suggest rain will extend across the country on Monday with further spells of rain at times throughout next week.
While there is better weather on the way from Friday, Thursday is set to be a cloudy day with temperatures set hit a maximum of 15 degrees. According to Met Eireann, there will be a good deal of cloud overall on Thursday but some sunny intervals also. Scattered showers will occur through the day, a few of the showers heavy, and the showers possibly merging to give longer spells of rain in the northwest towards evening time. Highest temperatures generally ranging 12 to 15 degrees. Southwest winds moderate to fresh and gusty but winds will be strong at times along coasts.
On Thursday night, showers will tend to become confined to coastal counties of the west and north overnight with long dry and clear spells developing elsewhere. Lowest temperatures of 8 to 11 degrees in a fresh and blustery southwest breeze.
