Is this that thing they call "summer"? Temperatures to soar to 20 degrees
However, there will be moderate winds in some areas. Sorry.

SUMMER IS FINALLY starting to firmly make its presence felt, and just in time for the weekend.

However, it’s a mixed story, as the high temperatures might not be accompanied by perfect conditions.

Met Éireann has forecast temperatures for this afternoon of between 17 to 20 degrees Celsius, but with some moderate south to southwest winds.

For us on land, this will, needless to say, mean there’ll be some good drying out, but for those at sea, it’s less welcome – a Status Yellow craft warning has been in effect since 5am this morning on coasts from Slyne Head to Rossan Point to Fair Head.

And while it’s due to be dry, there is a speckling of rain on the latest rainfall radar (see above), with light rain and drizzle affecting the north and northwest tonight, but dry elsewhere throughout the day.

This almost counts as summer, right?

The outlook for the weekend isn’t great – heavy rain on Saturday night with temperatures cooling on Sunday.

It must be summer: Met Éireann’s sunburn index earlier this week was moderate >
