Spring has finally sprung, but most of the country will be spending their time indoors as temperatures are expected to hit highs of 15C.

The remainder of the week will see the warmest weather of the year, but it won't last for long.

During the weekend, temperatures will plummet to lows of -1C at night.

According to Met Éireann forecaster Liz Gavin, the bulk of the country will experience warm, dry weather today and tomorrow.

She said that while it will be dry and sunny on Saturday, temperatures will begin to drop at night with a sharp frost in many areas.

Sunday will be cold and mainly dry with sunny spells, ranging from 7C to 9C, with similar weather being predicted for the first half of next week.
