TONIGHT - Thursday 24th May
Further scattered showers for a time tonight, with some mist and fog setting in too. Relatively mild with lowest temperatures of 8 to 12 degrees Celsius. Light northerly breezes at first will increase moderate later.
TOMORROW - Friday 25th May
A lot of warm and dry weather tomorrow Friday. Mostly sunny across the western half of the country. Sunshine will be hazier at times further east with some scattered showers moving in later in the day. A few of these will push into east Munster through the evening. Warm in sunshine, with top temperatures of 20 to 23 degrees Celsius, but fresher in some coastal areas as well as northern counties, with values in the mid to high teens. Breezier than recent days with moderate, occasionally fresh northerly breezes.
OUTLOOK: Becoming even warmer over the coming days as Continental air continues to feed in across Ireland. A lot of dry weather bright weather generally with light to moderate easterly breezes, however as the humidity increases, so too will the threat of scattered thunderstorms.
TOMORROW NIGHT: Mild and close with fairly widespread showers. Some of the showers will be heavy and possibly thundery, especially across the southern half of the country. Mist and fog setting in locally too. Lowest temperatures 9 to 13 degrees Celsius.
SUNDAY: Again warm and humid with highest temperatures typically ranging 18 to 22 or 23 degrees Celsius, warmest across central and northern areas. Some southwestern counties will experience slightly lower maxima with onshore breezes. Some scattered showers early on but they will tend to become more isolated with spells of sunshine through the day, all in near calm. Thundery showers may move in across eastern counties around nightfall though.
MONDAY and TUESDAY: Very warm with temperatures in the low to mid twenties generally. Mostly dry and sunny with light easterlies, however some thundery showers will once again break out in parts, with southern counties most at risk of seeing these.
The trend is for a similar regime to follow for another couple days.
