The good weather is set to return this week, with mercury rising up to 23 degrees.

After a dreary weekend, it's time to take out the sunglasses and shorts again as the weather is set to improve for the rest of the week.

"There will be rain tonight and rain in many parts of the country tomorrow morning, however it won't stick around for long and will clear in the afternoon, with temperatures ranging from 14 to 19 degrees in the east," a spokesperson for Met Eireann told

"High pressure and warm air from the south indicates that it will remain dry from Tuesday to Thursday, with high temperatures lasting until the end of the week."

On Tuesday temperatures will reach up to 18 degrees in the west and up to 20 degrees in the east.

Wednesday will be sunny, with mercury rising up to 23 degrees in the east.

It will be cooler in the east on Thursday, while the west will see temperatures of up to 23 degrees.

Light winds are expected throughout the week.

It's uncertain if the good weather will last until next weekend, with a chance of rain on Saturday.
