SUMMER is finally here as temperature look set to rise above 20 degrees this week.
According to Met Eireann’s weather forecast Monday will be a dry and mostly sunny day. Temperatures will be between 16 and 20 degrees in the afternoon. Southerly winds will be mostly moderate, and a little fresher near some coasts.
It will be dry and settled weather for most of the week ahead.
Tuesday and Wednesday will be dry days but there may be more in the way of cloud. Highest temperatures of 14 to 19 degrees southeast breezes will be mostly moderate in strength but fresh along the southwest coast.
Thursday and Friday are also looking largely dry with sunny spells, just a chance of some rain on the west coast and a few isolated showers elsewhere. Winds will turn more easterly and afternoon temperatures will generally be between 14 and 17 degrees.
It looks like it will become a bit more unsettled next weekend with spells of rain moving in from the east, though current indications are that rainfall amounts will be generally small.
