SOAK up those rays of sunshine, as a bout of more typical Irish weather is on the way.
Rain is expected to sweep across the country from mid-week as the weather begins to break tomorrow.
Met Eireann forecaster Gerry Murphy yesterday warned that a bout of "typical Irish weather" was on its way.
"Over the last week an anticyclone with high pressure kept the weather settled," Mr Murphy said.
"That will now move to the east. It will become more dominated by weather from the west, which is normal.
"A band of rain will cross the country on Wednesday."
The weather will begin to change tomorrow, with more cloud cover and spots of rain and drizzle.
People countrywide made a beeline for parks and walks and anything related to the outdoors as some areas basked in 10 to 11 hours of sunshine each day over the past week.
"There were no temperature records broken over the past few days, even though it was a pleasant spell," Mr Murphy added.
The temperatures will continue to be mild throughout the week, ranging from 11C to 14C.
