Humidity is the key word for the week - but the clouds will break to bring sunshine

Humidity is the key word for the rest of the week, as Ireland is set for hazy sunshine and patches of rain.

Today will bring cloudy skies and high temperatures of 16-20 degrees, according to Met Éireann's Siobhan Ryan.

"That will make for a humid and mostly cloudy day to come with patchy outbreaks of rain, most of it affecting Ulster and the north of Leinster with some hill and coastal fog in the short term," she told RTÉ Radio One's Morning Ireland.

"The rain will, however, tend to peter out and reveal some brightness developing."

Tomorrow could be the best day of the week with a potential  "quite summery" feeling.

The clouds will part to reveal sunshine and temperatures will hit between 18-22 degrees.

Thursday is also calm, warm, humid and mostly dry but a localised thundery shower and evening rain may occur along the west and north-west coastline.

And for the weekend?

Friday will be mild with rain holding off until the evening.

Temperatures will start to slip back to 14-18 degrees with some further rain but, luckily, current forecasts suggest Saturday will be completely dry.
