YES! The weather is looking up today and we can’t wait to get out in it

Olivia Hayes

The weather has been a mixed bag lately.

There’s been rain and wind, it’s been cold and warm… it’s just been all over the place.

However, while there will be a small bit of rain spreading from the west to the east coast, it will be mainly dry and warm today.

Met Éireann said: “Today will start mainly dry with some sunshine. However, rain on west coasts will spread across the country during the day, reaching the east early this afternoon and the southeast by evening. A clearance will follow in the west and north later in the day.

“Highest temperatures of 16 to 18 degrees. It will become breezy with the rain with fresh southerly winds.”

Meanwhile, the weather forecaster said that tonight will be dry with some drizzle, with temperatures dropping to 12 degrees.

“Tonight it will become dry in most areas with broken cloud. Some drizzle will affect western coastal areas. Lowest temperatures of 12 to 14 degrees in moderate southwest winds.”

Thursday is looking even better, with temperatures rising.

“Thursday will be a dry day in the east and south with sunny spells breaking through. Outbreaks of rain and drizzle will affect the west and north. Becoming warm with highest temperatures of 18 to 22 degrees. Breezy at times with moderate to fresh southwest winds.”
