This is not a drill: It's sunny outside*

*But there’s bad news if you live in the south.

THERE ARE CLEAR skies over most of the country right now, with temperatures hitting 20 degrees Celsius in some places.

It being Ireland, there is a risk of showers later – with Met Éireann warning that some mist or fog patches will persist near southern and eastern coasts.

Tonight will be largely dry, but there will be outbreaks of rain in south Munster (sorry guys). Temperatures will not fall lower than 11 or 12 degrees.

There’ll be spells of rain in southern parts of Munster and Leinster tomorrow, but it’ll be mainly dry further north with hazy sunshine. Temperatures will hit 14 to 17 degrees in the south and east, but climb to 18 to 21 degrees elsewhere.

The south will continue to get the worst of the weather on Monday night and into Tuesday.

The northern half of the country will continue to stay mainly dry with what Met Éireann has described as “warm sunshine” at times. That’s the best kind of sunshine, to be fair.
