After recent spells of sunshine and brighter days across Galway, the spring-like weather is set to continue into the new week with dry and sunny conditions forecast for the coming days.
Met Éireann says that high pressure will dominate for much of this week, bringing some much-needed sunshine in temperatures of around 11 degrees in the afternoon.
Today, Sunday will be mostly sunny and dry in Galway with high temperatures of 10 or 11 degrees in light southeasterly breezes.
Tonight will be dry and clear for the most part, with mist and fog forming in a light easterly breeze. Some dense pockets of fog could develop towards dawn and there is a slight risk of frost with lowest temperatures of 1 to 4 degrees.
Monday is set to be a bright, clear and mostly sunny day, with high temperatures of around 10 degrees mid-afternoon after frost and fog clear gradually throughout the morning.
Monday night will again be mostly clear and dry, with frost and fog possible in parts in cold temperatures of between 1 and 4 degrees Celsius.
Another nice day is in store on Tuesday, which will be mostly sunny across Galway for much of the day and temperatures up to 12 degrees.
Wednesday will be generally dry again but a little cloudier than previous days. There is a risk of some patchy light rain in the south and east, but overall amounts will be small. Highest temperatures of 8 to 11 degrees in a light variable breeze.
Met Éireann’s early forecast for Thursday and Friday and into the weekend is that it will remain dry and bright, but somewhat cloudier than early in the week and a bit colder – with daytime highs of just 5 to 7 degrees and sharp frosts at night.
