Wrapping up warm? No need, it's going to stay mild this weekend

Temperatures will reach as high as 14 degrees in some parts today.

THIS WEEK’S WARM weather is set to continue into this weekend, with temperatures likely to remain in double figures until Sunday.

The mild December weather broke records earlier this week, with meteorologist Liz Walsh telling that “this is about as warm as it gets in December”.

The unseasonably warm weather has persisted across the country, with Finner in south Donegal reaching 15.7 degrees, and the Phoenix Park in Dublin reaching the same temperature, on Wednesday.

Met Éireann said it will be “very mild again this morning” with “temperatures of 12 to 14 degrees”. Tonight will be mostly clear and dry with lows of around 6 to 10 degrees.

Saturday, meanwhile, will be a “bright, fresh day with good sunny spells and dry apart from some scattered showers”.

Temperatures tomorrow will range for 9 to 12 degrees, according to Met Éireann.

Our week of warm weather is set to take a turn from Sunday, however, as temperatures are set to drop and it gets a lot wetter across the country.

Met Éireann said:

The further outlook to the early days of next week is for a spell of unsettled weather with showers or longer spells of rain giving way to drier conditions mid week.
