Whether you’ll be waving the red and green or blue this coming Sunday at Croke Park, fans from both counties should be smiling as the sun is set to make an appearance.

Dublin and Mayo fans descending on Croke Park will be pleased to note temperatures are likely to improve to the high teens and low 20s, with little or no wind.

“It’s good news. It looks like the weekend is going to be lovely,” RTÉ weather forecaster Evelyn Cusack told Irish Independent.

“Sunday should be fine, pleasant with light winds and the temperatures will be as high as 20 degrees.

“The start of next week looks pleasant too, there is some fine autumn weather on the way.”

And we shouldn’t lose our Irish weather optimism for the rest of this week just yet either, as today’s dreary rain is set to give way to clear skies.

Although still damp and murky across the southern half of the country tonight, tomorrow will be a largely dry across the country with some sunny spells.

A wet and windy start can be expected on Thursday for most areas, but the day will also improve with good sunshine breaking through the afternoon.

And nothing’s going to kill the ‘Friday Feeling’ as it’s forecasted to be a dry day across most regions with sunny spells and isolated showers.
