Those hoping for pleasant weather over the bank holiday weekend won't be disappointed with Met Eireann predicting a dry, bright, sunny couple of days ahead.
Tonight (Friday) will be a calm and dry night with fog patches which will give way to a dry warm day on Saturday with spells of warm hazy sunshine. Highest temperatures of 17 to 22 degrees.
Saturday night will be foggy but again this will give way to warmer dryer conditions on Sunday morning, with highest temperatures expected to lie between 15 and 20 degrees. Monday is likely to be a cooler day with a few showers breaking out throughout the day. Top temperatures of 14-18 degrees celsius.
SUNDAY: Sunday looks like being a dry day in many areas. The overnight mist and fog will burn off and spells of hazy sunshine will develop, especially in the midland and east. However thickening cloud may well bring some scattered rain to southwestern, western and northwestern coastal fringes during the evening or more likely overnight. Highest temperatures expected to lie between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius, highest in the midland and east in a moderate southerly breeze, freshening along the west coast later.
MONDAY: Latest indications suggest breezier generally on Monday especially on the west coast. Rather cloudy over western areas with the risk of some rain at times. Brighter elsewhere, with sunny spells and just an outside risk of a few showers breaking out later in the day. Maxima still well above normal at 14 to 18 or 19 degrees Celsius, highest in eastern areas.
