There’ll be little call for umbrellas this week as Met Eireann has forecast a largely dry week with sunny spells in many places.
After more than our fair share of rain, Donegal can look forward to some decent weather at last apart from the very odd shower.
Met Eireann has said a “warm and humid” day is expected today – with temperatures hitting 22C.
Hazy sunshine will hit most parts of the country but scattered showers may hit western areas.
Met Eireann said: “Largely dry over the eastern half of the country today, but scattered showers or longer spells of rain will affect western parts, possibly heavy at times later.
“Mostly cloudy overall, but spells of hazy sunshine will occur at times too. Warm and humid, with maximum temperatures of 18 to 22C, in mostly light to moderate southeast breezes.
“Mild and humid tonight with variable cloud amounts and scattered showers. The showers will become confined to the east and north overnight. Lows of 11 to 15C.
“Mist and fog patches will form towards dawn in the mainly light south to southeast breezes.
“Tomorrow, Tuesday, will start out cloudy in many areas, but largely dry. Warm sunny spells will develop as the day goes on but scattered showers will break out also, mainly over the western half of the country.
“Some of the showers could be heavy. Highest temperatures of 19 to 23C, warmest in Leinster, in light southerly or variable breezes.”
The good weather is expected to stick around for most of the week with 22C also on the cards for Wednesday.
They continued: “Continuing mild overall, with bright or sunny spells and scattered light showers, once early mist and fog patches clear.
“Maximum temperatures will range 20 to 22C generally, but a little cooler in east Ulster and along Irish Sea coasts with the cool onshore east to northeast breezes capping temperatures at 17 to 19C.
“Mainly dry with clear periods on Wednesday night, and just the odd light shower.”Tags:
