Met Eireann forecasting a return of summer with high pressure on the way!

Met Eireann is forecasting a return of summer next week with high pressure on the way that is set to dominate the weather in Ireland. 

According to the latest Met Eireann weather forecast, while we are in for changeable and cool weather in the coming days, especially in the west, warmer and drier intervals will develop from midweek as high pressure builds driving temperatures back into the low twenties.

Before that there will be a mixed bag over the weekend with Saturday forecast to bring a mix of sunny spells and scattered showers with some of them turning heavy at times. 

Sunday will be mainly dry with temperatures reaching 15 to 18 degrees.
