THAT INDIAN SUMMER you’d been hoping for?

Well it looks like it’s on the way.

After weeks of changeable weather, temperatures are set to creep up to 20 degrees later this week.

There’ll be a cloudy start today, but it should still reach 18 degrees with bright and sunny patches.

It’ll be pretty similar tomorrow, with the best of the weather due on Wednesday and Thursday, according to Met Éireann.

“A mild, mainly dry day, with a mixture of sunny spells and occasional cloudy periods. Top temperatures 17 to 20 C., in light to moderate south to southeasterly breezes,” the current forecast reads for Wednesday.

Thursday will be “mild and close and warm in any sunny breaks, with temperatures 16 to 20 C.”.

Temperatures are set to drop back a bit by the weekend, and there’ll be a few more showers around — but still some sunny spells too.

So… As usual, Ireland — suncream/umbrellas on standby.
