Ireland will savour dry and bright but cold spring weather over the weekend as the clocks move forward an hour tomorrow.

House-bound families will enjoy perfect weather for outdoor exercise over the next four days, with summer time officially beginning from tomorrow morning with a welcome extra hour of daylight.

Met √Čireann's Liz Walsh said Ireland will enjoy dry, mostly settled weather over the weekend though it will turn colder tomorrow.

"Saturday will be another dry day for most areas with sunny spells, but it will cloud over at times," she said.

The south and east will enjoy the best of the weather - with the chance of isolated showers in the north and north-east. Temperatures will reach 12C or even 13C.

"Sunday will be a dry day countrywide after a chilly start with frost in the west and north. There will be good sunshine away from eastern and southern coastal counties but it will brighten up at times in these parts too."
