THE WEATHER’S BEEN beautiful the last couple of days and these brave swimmers in Salthill were making the most of it.

Met Éireann is forecasting temperatures temperatures of between 13 and 17 degrees Celsius and it will be warmest in the midlands. Unfortunately for those of you in the west and northwest counties, there’s a sneaky band of rain creeping in:

For the rest of the country, it will stay dry for much of the day with a mix of cloud and sunny spells. Temperatures will dip slightly in the evening with rain and drizzle spreading across Atlantic counties. Fear not though, tomorrow promises to be a dry day across much of the country with “good sunny spells”.

It may soon be time to dust off those short-shorts.
