Summer is set to make a brief reappearance over the next few days, with highs in the early twenties expected in most parts of the country.

Sun seekers have been advised to make the most of the next four days, as temperatures are set to climb until Tuesday, when the good weather will break once again.

Met Éireann forecaster John Eagleton told Independent.ie that it will be “mostly dry” over the coming days, with scattered showers punctuating the weekend.

“It’ll be dry most of the time and there will be an improvement in temperatures. It will be up to 20 degrees and 21 tomorrow, maybe 22 on Monday, 23 possibly Tuesday. So it will be improving by about a degree each day,” he said.

“There’ll be the odd shower over the weekend, we can’t rule that out but it looks like Monday and Tuesday will be mostly dry. There’ll be more rain after that though so it isn’t here to stay, unfortunately.”

Today is set to be a mild, clear day, with “light north easterly breezes” and temperatures ranging between 17 and 20 degrees. The forecaster warned that scattered heavy showers will also break out in some parts.

Much of the same is expected for Sunday, with temperatures rising again and reaching highs of 21-22 degrees.

Monday and Tuesday will are set to be warm and dry, with clouds moving in across the Atlantic on Tuesday evening, spurring rain and drizzle in western coastal counties.

The good weather is set to end country-wide on Wednesday, with rain “persisting throughout the day”.

Met Éireann have warned that spot flooding may occur in some areas. The rain will be accompanied by humid conditions, with temperatures ranging between 17 and 20 degrees.
