Dry and sunny weather promised for the week – Met Eireann

Dry and sunny weather is promised for the week with Met Eireann forecasting temperatures to reach 16 degrees in parts.

It is forecast to be cloudy this morning, Monday, with patchy mist and drizzle in places, but otherwise generally dry.

The cloud will thin out later this afternoon and it is promised that better brightness will develop towards evening.

Highest temperatures today will range between 10 and 13 degrees in light southwesterly breezes.

Tonight is likely to be a mainly dry and clear night with some patches of fog and mist, while lowest temperatures will range between 1 and 4 degrees.

Met Eireann has said that a grass frost is likely to occur tonight. For the week ahead, weather charts suggest that northern and central areas may stay almost completely dry.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, is forecast to be a mostly dry day with good sunshine set to develop through the day. Temperatures tomorrow will range between 10 and 14 degrees in light easterly breezes.

Current indications suggest that Wednesday will be a dry day with good sunshine and highest temperatures of 13 to 16 degrees in moderate easterly breezes.

Mean air temperatures are expected to average out just below normal this week, bringing soil temperatures closer to normal this week.

Thursday will be another dry day and it is promised to be sunny with highs again of 12 to 16 degrees, however fresh east to southeast winds will keep it cooler near the Leinster and south-Munster coast.

On Friday it will continue to be dry in most parts of the country, however occasional rain is forecast along the south Munster coast during the day. Highest temperatures on Friday will range between 10 and 15 degrees.

With very little rain forecast for the week, there will be good opportunities for spraying and drying.

Met Eireann suggests that for next weekend, it will be mostly dry but it will become cooler.
