Dig out the barbecue this weekend as the sunshine and warm temperatures on the way won't last past Monday.

Ireland is in line for some sunshine and toasty temperatures - up to 20C - this weekend.

But Met Éireann predicts that a wet and cold spell is expected to roll in next week.

The national forecaster said that today will be slightly overcast and cloudy, with some rain over Connacht and Munster throughout the evening.

The outlook for this weekend is positive, as most parts of the country will experience temperatures hovering around 15C to 19C.

During the night, some rain will move in from the Atlantic, but will only affect some areas around Connacht and Munster.

Similar to tomorrow, Saturday is expected to be dry in most areas, with some patches of rain in between. Highs between 16C and 20C can be expected.

During Saturday night, the rain will then start to spread out eastwards into the country, with freshening winds coming in from the south-west.

According to Met Éireann, Sunday will see a rainy early morning, before clearing up during the day.

Strong winds can be expected on the western and northern coasts.

The temperatures are then expected to start dropping slightly, but highs of 14C to 18C will remain on Sunday.

Current indications for next week show that temperatures will be gradually dropping, and that Ireland is facing "unsettled weather" in the following days.
