Galway is in for a hot weekend, with temperatures going well over the 20 degree mark, and growing spells of sunshine.
One thing we’re not expected to see this weekend according to Met Eireann, in a rarity for Galway, is any rain, despite grey skies at times.
Friday will be a hot and humid start to the weekend, with mostly overcast skies and highest temperatures of 18 to 20 degrees inland.
In coastal areas the mercury will read a more manageable 15 to 16 degrees, with a light to moderate westerly wind to freshen the air.
Start will start off cloudy, but with more frequent sunny skies as the day progresses. Highest temperatures on Saturday will be a beach appropriate 16 to 22 degrees in the afternoon.
The winds of Friday will also have died down to nothing more than a light variable breeze on Saturday.
