Summers NOT over yet!

STOP - don't put the bbq's and sun hats away just yet as Met Eireann have forecast warm conditions to make a return this week!

Despite temperatures plunging to below 0C in the early hours of this morning, temperatures are set to reach between 12-15C over the next 48 hours. However, wednesday could be an absolute SCORCHER with the national forecaster predicting temperatures of 21C -  very appealing for Ireland, especially at this time of year!

National Outlook:

High pressure looks set to dominate bringing a good deal of dry weather across the country but there will be rain at times, mainly in the north and northwest.

Tuesday night: Mostly cloudy on Tuesday night with patchy rain or drizzle but overall rainfall amounts will be small with many areas holding dry. Minimum temperatures of 10 to 13 degrees in moderate to fresh southwest winds.

Wednesday: Plenty of cloud around on Wednesday with the chance of a little patchy rain in the northwest but largely dry elsewhere. Sunny spells will develop across many southern and eastern areas later. Feeling noticeably warmer than in preceding days with top temperatures of 17 to 21 degrees in moderate southwest winds. Most areas dry overnight but with patchy rain or drizzle possible in the northwest.

Thursday: Most southern and eastern counties will be dry for much of the day on Thursday with some hazy sunshine. However, thicker cloud with patchy rain or drizzle will affect Connacht and Ulster and this patchy light rain will gradually extend southeastwards later in the day. Highest temperatures 15 to 19 degrees, warmest in the southeast. Moderate westerly breezes will veer northwesterly during the day.
