Ne'er cast your clout! High teens all-round despite cooling temperatures

Best not put away that jacket just yet, Met Eireann are predicting that temperatures will slip this weekend.
Despite enjoying a good deal of sunshine the last few days, most of Ireland is expected to cool from Friday onwards.
“It will be rather breezy for the rest of the week too,” said a Met spokesperson. “Most areas will remain dry however, with afternoon temperatures reaching as high as 12 to 14 degrees.”
“In the south midlands and east, expect a mild 15 to 17 degrees, possibly even 18 if there’s no cloud cover.”
Adding: “Temperatures in the high teens are still above average for April.”
Southwest breezes will be mostly moderate in strength, with gusts near northwest coasts.
Thursday night will be cold again, especially further north where there is likely to be a frost, while in the south, and things will be marginally milder but still rather cold but all areas.
Drivers should watch out for patches of mist and fog forming as the wind dies down.
Friday will be a brighter day but there will still be a good deal of cloud around. Frost should be expected again come night time.
The cloud is due to disperse widely on Saturday, increasing the likelihood of sunshine, though clear skies means a colder night with temperatures down to near freezing again.
Sunday, and the early days of next week, will see little change as the high pressure centre over Scotland and the North Sea will remain.
