TEMPERATURES WILL REACH the high teens in some areas today, as some seasonably mild weather takes hold (it is spring after all).

Here’s the official outlook for the day, from Met Éireann:

Very mild today with highest temperatures of 13 to 16 or 17 degrees Celsius, in moderate southwesterly breezes. Rather cloudy and locally damp to begin, but spells of spring sunshine will develop in many places.

After a mild night, we’ll have similar conditions tomorrow, with temperatures of up to 16 degrees.

Temperatures will fall back a little each day this week – and as you might expect (this being Ireland) conditions will be decidedly mixed, with a combination of dry and wet spells.

The forecast for Friday – St Patrick’s Day – predicts a chilly start, with rain and drizzle in northern and western areas. Other parts of the country should stay bright for daylight hours, with temperatures of 9 or 10 degrees.

If you’re planning a trip to east coast of the US for St Patrick’s week, by the way, the region is bracing for an intense blizzard that’s expected to dump up to 18 inches of snow in New York.
