Dublin: 8 °C Tuesday 19 November, 2019

Yep, it's still hot out there...

But weekend temperatures are going to drop to 21°C. Brrr!

JUST AS WE run out of summer clothes to wear, Met Éireann has advised that temperatures are due to drop from tomorrow.

But not by a whole lot.

The north and northwest can expect top temperatures of just 21°C, but elsewhere, it might hit the heady heights of 26°C.

However, our old friends rain and drizzle might also make an appearance in parts of Ulster and Connacht, while high temperatures may cause some heavy showers to develop in the south of the country during the afternoon.

Looking ahead to next week, temperatures will fall to average or just above average with a risk of light showers in places.

The forecasters predict:

It will be not quite as warm for the first few days of next week as temperatures return to values of the high teens to the low or mid twenties. There will be a mix of sunny and cloudier spells. Monday will be a dry day, but towards the late evening some light rain will move into coastal parts of the north.

So, make the most of today when temperatures could hit 30°C and spells of long sunshine will be experienced in much of the country. There are 99s to be eaten, meat to be grilled and paddling pools to be filled. Go forth and enjoy the Friday sun.

(And remember, if you’re going to be near water, stay safe).
