It must be summer. Met Éireann says sunburn index today is moderate

Better get out that Factor 50.

‘SETTLED DRY WEATHER for most of the week’ – we thought we would never hear the words, but that’s exactly what Met Éireann are forecasting for the week.

Not only will it be warm and balmy, but today Met Éireann tweeted something we have not seen in a long time:

Better get the Factor 50 out so.

The radar shows that Ireland isn’t looking too bad either, with just a few showers dotted around:

Today we are going good sunny spells with temperatures of 13 to 16 degrees, with some scattered showers mainly affecting Ulster and Leinster.

Wednesday will be dry, but may be a little cloudy said Met Éireann, but temeperatures will be 13 to 17 degrees with a light moderate west to southeasterly breeze.

Thursday is when the nice weather really kicks in with temperatures rising to 15 to 18 degrees. It will be mainly dry with sunny spells.

If you have a flexi day in work though or are due some leave, Friday would be your best bet to take off as Met Éireann says temperatures could hit 20 degrees in some areas, with light westerly winds.

Look here at the high pressure just creeping up over the next few days – enjoy!
