That's it for the sunshine ... at least until next week

IF YOU’VE SPENT the last few days lounging in the sun, catching up on your tan, and frolicking in the sea, you’ll have to put those activities on hold from tomorrow.

The sunny weather Ireland has enjoyed over the past few days is due to come to an end tomorrow, as cloudier conditions move in.

However, initial forecasts suggest it may not last too long.

Temperatures during the week have lingered around the high teens, with one weather station in Kilkenny recording a reading of close to 20 degrees.

Tomorrow will see cloud move in, with temperatures remaining as high as 16.

By Saturday, your spring jacket will be put back into temporary storage, with 9 to 11 degrees forecast, along with scattered showers. It will even dip below freezing on Sunday night. Great.

We’re not getting too excited yet, but Met Éireann has given us a glimmer of hope for the middle of next week:

Dry and settled with good sunshine and temperatures gradually reaching 17 or 18 degrees.

Here’s how it’s been looking over Ireland today:
