WEEKEND TEMPERATURES ARE set to climb into the teens – with Saturday bringing some spring sun.

While today will be mostly dry and cloudy, with temperatures hitting between 11 and 13 degrees, tonight will be colder, dropping to around 2 degrees Celsius.

Tomorrow will be largely the same, before Friday becomes sunnier, according to Met Éireann:

Friday will be dry with sunny spells. There’ll be a bit more cloud along Connacht and west Ulster coasts with a risk of a little drizzle at times. Highest temperatures of 11 to 15 degrees with light south to southwest breezes. It will be warmest in Leinster.

That will continue into Saturday, as temperatures hit 17 degrees.

However, Sunday will be cooler and cloudier:

There’ll be some patchy rain or drizzle for a time, mainly over the northern half of the country. Highest temperatures of 9 to 13 degrees with light southerly breezes, veering northwesterly and freshening.

Monday currently looks like it will be dry, but next week will see rain and temperatures around 10 to 13 degrees.
