Temperatures will remain in the region of 17 to 21 Degrees Celsius but patches of drizzle will begin again this afternoon.

A Met Eireann spokesman says that the rest of today day will remain mostly dry and bright in the Eastern half of the country.

However, clouds will begin to spread to Western parts and bring some patchy rain this afternoon and evening.

It will remain pleasant today in the South East.

Tomorrow, Thursday, will be mostly cloudy nationwide with some scattered outbreaks of light drizzle for most of the day.

In the afternoon temperatures will again reach highs of 21 degrees, and it will be dry and bright in most areas.

According to Met Eireann, conditions will be best in the West in the afternoon.

The spokesman also confirmed that the heavy thundery showers we experienced yesterday were due to the recent warm temperatures.

Friday will continue to be warm with bright sunny spells, but clouds in places.

“A lot of dry weather but do expect patches of light rain or showers,” he added.

“In general, the weekend looks like there will be more widespread rain on Saturday, heavy in places, but Sunday will be drier brighter and fresher.”
