It's good news for people living in the south of Ireland today as temperatures are set to soar again, but cooler weather is expected to hit the north-west.

Met Eireann forecaster Liz Walsh told Independent.ie that parts of Ireland are expected to reach up to 15 degrees today.

"It's a murky start this morning with mist and patchy rain moving in from the North West towards the east.

"The southern part of the country as well as parts of Leinster will stay dry today with sunny spells."

Ms Walsh said that temperatures will vary depending on where you are in the country.

It's good news for those in the south as temperatures are expected to reach up to 15 degrees today.

However those living in the north-west will see temperatures of between eight and nine degrees as a cold front passes over the north of the country.

"Today is a bit different to yesterday as there is a change of mass. Yesterday was a taster of what's to come but it won't be as hot today."

Ms Walsh says next week will be cool, with most of the country seeing rain on Tuesday night.

"Again next week it will be cooler in the north-west of the country, while everywhere else remains mostly dry except for Tuesday night where rain is widespread."

You can make outdoor plans for the Easter weekend as Ms Walsh said it's likely to remain dry on Easter Sunday and Monday.

"There is no big storm headed for Easter weekend anyway and it looks like it will be a dry weekend. The best days will be Easter Sunday and Monday."
