Temperatures to hit up to 22C for Easter weekend after floods batter country
FLOODS have hit much of the country as storms crashed into the west coast over the weekend.
However, the Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde-like weather will take another wild swing, with torrential rainfall and cold conditions set to be replaced by sunshine and balmy temperatures for Easter.
The weekend will be pleasant and dry, with spells of sunshine and temperatures ranging from 20C to nearly 22C. Saturday and Sunday will be fine and dry.
Temperatures will soar from the drab 8C experienced last weekend to 17C tomorrow and a glorious 22C on Friday.
Met Eireann’s John Eagleton said that while Easter Monday could see the return of showers, the coming week will prove a welcome contrast to the past 48 hours.
A total of four weather warnings were in place across Ireland yesterday, with Cork bearing the brunt of the torrential downpours and resultant floods.
“The prospects are very good indeed for the Easter weekend,” Mr Eagleton said.
“Things will definitely start to improve after the rainfall and cold temperatures of last weekend.”
