Met Éireann’s latest forecast seems to have diminished any hope of a weekend filled with 20C heat and clear skies.

While some areas will reach 19C over the next few days, cloud and bursts of rain are likely to hamper outdoor plans.

According to the Irish forecasters, “the weekend will be quite cloudy overall, with rain and drizzle at times, although amounts will be low.”

They also predicted that things will be ”drier and sunnier early next week.”

As for today, conditions will be mostly cloudy with patches of mist and fog.

It’ll stay largely dry throughout the day with occasional sunny spells developing and highest temperatures of 15 to 19 degrees with a light northwesterly breeze.

Cloud will thicken in most areas tonight, bringing scattered patches of drizzle. Mist and fog will develop too with very light and variable winds and temperatures will dip to between 7 and 11 degrees.
