Met Éireann are predicting the return of summer later this week as the weather is expected to warm up.
According to the national weather service today (Tuesday) will continue drizzly and cool in Connacht but tomorrow will see drier weather with “some good sunny spells”.
High temperatures on Wednesday will be 15 to 17 degrees but will possibly warm up by Thursday afternoon to 18 or 19 degrees.
Thursday will see continued sunny spells with occasional light passing showers.
The weekend – and the start of next week – will likely be sunny and warm.
Met Éireann have said that Friday will be warm and humid, adding “after some early morning sunshine with a lot of dry weather about generally, showery outbreaks of rain will slowly develop.”
Temperatures on Friday could hit highs of 17 to 21 degrees with moderate southerly breezes.
But Saturday is expected to see sunny weather along with continuing high temperatures in the high teens or low twenties.
The weather service predicts “overall a lot of dry weather…with light southerlies” and “just the odd shower” on Saturday.
“Sunday will see a band of rain move into Atlantic counties,” they added, but overall “high pressure is likely to become established bringing dry calm weather well into next week.”
So put your sweaters back in the closet – we may get one last burst of summer before autumn sets in.
