IF YOU’RE PLANNING a beach day this week, it’s looking like Wednesday’s the day to do it.

Temperatures have been creeping up since Friday — with tomorrow and Wednesday set to be the best days of the week.

It’ll hit 23 in some areas later today, with the best conditions in the Midlands.

After a warm night — with temperatures unlikely to drop below 10 degrees — it’s set to reach up to 24 degrees tomorrow.

The outlook for the rest of the week, from Met Éireann:

Wednesday will be yet another dry and mostly very warm day, with spells of sunshine in many areas; however, northern coastal counties may turn out cloudier than other parts of the country.

“Winds will be generally light, but sea breezes will keep many coastal margins a few degrees fresher than inland areas.

“Generally dry conditions will persist for Thursday and Friday but it is likely that both days will have more cloud, particularly across the northern half of the country.”

However, “maximum temperatures will be several degrees lower than those earlier in the week”.

Similar conditions are set to persist into the weekend, with amid of cloud and sunny spells.
