The good news is the warm, sunny weather is set to continue for the weekend.

Although onshore breezes will keep temperatures moderate along northern and eastern coasts today, it will still be pleasant, with a mixture of sun and light clouds. Temperatures will range between 13-18C in most areas, and up to 20C inland.

While the warm trend will continue tomorrow, it will be a cold night tonight, dipping down to between 2-8C. Fog and mist in coastal areas is also likely in the morning. But the mercury won't stay down for long tomorrow, according to Met Eireann.

Dry and intermittent sunny conditions are forecast for much of the country on Sunday with highs of between 12-14C along the northern and eastern coasts with onshore breezes.

The pleasant spell will continue into Monday with the south midlands enjoying the warmest temperatures - around the 20C mark. It will be cooler along the north and east coasts.

It will remain largely dry with good sunny spells throughout the day. But clouds will build in the afternoon with rain possible. The dry spell is forecast to end on Tuesday.
