Met Eireann have forecast "changeable" weather for the week ahead but temperatures are expected to be higher than normal.

People across the country have been hoping for the sunny spells of last week to continue for the rest of the month but we'll have to settle for typical Irish May weather instead.

Met Eireann has forecast changeable weather for the week ahead but with slightly higher temperatures than usual.

"It's your typical, run-of-the-mill weather for late May although temperatures are expected to be a degree or two warmer than usual," a spokesperson for Met Eireann said.

Monday and Tuesday will be the driest days, with highs of 21 and 22 degrees expected inland, although there may be one or two passing showers in some places.

There'll be bursts of sunshine each day but they won't be particularly sunny days. Overall most days will be breezy and cloudy.

Thursday is expected to be the wettest day with 6 to 8mm of rainfall prediected.

Friday will feel slightly cooler and fresher with mixed weather expected for the weekend.
