WE CAN PUT the wet, windy, and generally pretty miserable weather behind us, as Met Éireann is forecasting temperatures in the high teens for the Easter weekend.

Dull conditions and scattered showers are due to disperse by late afternoon tonight, but it will remain cool and breezy. Conditions are set to improve right into next week.

If you’re looking to take advantage of temperatures of as high as 16 degrees tomorrow, your best bet would be heading to the east and south, where the sunny breaks are likely to linger.

Easter Sunday will see highest temperatures of between 13 and 16 degrees, while Monday sees the thermometers potentially reaching 17 degrees. Ground frost is possible both nights.

“The settled weather will continue through Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday,” the forecast reads.

It will be dry apart from perhaps a little drizzle at times on northern coasts. It will feel pleasant with sunny spells and daytime temperatures of between 14 and 17 or 18 degrees.
