After a very cold, wet and almost wintry last week, the weather is finally set to take an upturn now that the “summer” has arrived.
Met Eireann claim that conditions will be much nicer this week, starting tomorrow, with temperatures finally beginning to rise.
They say mid teens will crisscross the country with even 20c in Western counties, but cooler on the east coast.
The weather forecaster said:
“The outlook is for mainly dry, settled weather over the coming week and getting much milder also.
Still cool on Monday night with minimum air temperatures 2 to 6 degrees and a touch of ground frost in rural areas.
Tuesday: A fine, dry day and sunny for most and very mild with temperatures in the mid to high teens generally and up to 20 degrees in the west. However it will be much cooler along the east coast due to onshore breezes. Winds generally light to moderate easterly.
Wednesday/Thursday/Friday: Mainly dry with sunny spells. Highest temperatures typically in the mid-teens but a much cooler 10 to 12 degrees in the east. Quite windy generally with fresh easterly winds prevailing.”
