Galway Daily news galway weather sun

Three days of sunshine and blue skies have been forecast by Met Éireann for later this week before the weather takes a turn for the worse on Easter Sunday.

After mostly cloudy conditions today and tomorrow, Thursday is set to bring temperatures of up to 16 degrees and decent spells of sunshine throughout the day.

And while the temperatures will dip slightly on Good Friday, Met Éireann has forecast unbroken sunshine throughout the day across the county.

Temperatures on Friday afternoon will be around 13 degrees but they could drop to freezing overnight with and mist and fog developing in light breezes.

The early forecast for Easter Saturday is that it will be another sunny day in Galway, with the possibility of some cloud pushing down from the north as the day goes on.

But despite the welcome three-day sunny streak, things will return to normal on Easter Sunday with rain and widespread showers forecast, turning wintry at times in places.

It will also become breezy and cooler as a strengthening northerly airflow sets in with widespread frosts at night.
