Temperatures could reach 18 degrees in some lucky places today

We’ve got a taste for the good weather and rain just won’t do.

IF YOU’RE LUCKY enough to grab a few minutes and get out of the office today, you should, as temperatures are set to reach the high teens in some areas.

But if you’re like those of us in TheJournal.ie office, you’re probably currently staring a grey sky.

Met Éireann has uttered those welcome words that today will be “mild” and “mostly dry”.

The recent good weather has given us a taste for the heat, and today shouldn’t disappoint. There will be afternoon highs of 13 or 14 degrees Celsius in northwestern areas.

However, it will be 15 to 17 degrees Celsius inland in Munster and in Leinster.

Some areas will bask in sunshine today, with the possibility of temperatures reaching 18 degrees.

It won’t all be warm though…

Now for the bad news. It will be a little breezy and there may be some light rain or drizzle in the north and northwest, but otherwise, it’ll be dry.

Those clouds languishing in the sky this morning should clear for some great sunny spells in the afternoon.

If you can, you should make the most of it today, as temperatures are set to fall back slightly this week.

Met Éireann said the remainder of the week should be mostly dry, with early indications suggesting there will be little change for the next week.

Hurray! Let’s start planning our trips to the beach.
