Met Éireann reports that temperatures could reach massive highs this week

It's hot out there.

Okay, not hot like summer, but hot for February.

This time last year, we were hit with a pretty whopper snow storm.

And today, we enjoyed what felt like a proper summer's day - with temperatures of 15 degrees.

Weird right?

Anyway, according to Met Éireann, we're in for a pretty warm week!

The forecasters have predicted a mild and dry week for the country, and we're pretty happy.

"Wednesday will be dry with bright or sunny spells once early mist and fog patches clear. Maximum temperatures of 11 to 15 degrees Celsius, possibly reaching 16 degrees in parts of the mid-west, dependent on sunshine. Variable cloud and clear spells with a few spots of drizzle overnight."

Someone please pass the SPF.

"Thursday will see cloud with a little patchy drizzle will extend eastwards over the country during the morning followed by drier, clearer and sunnier intervals from the west. Maximum temperatures will range 11 to 14 degrees in light to moderate westerly breezes."

BBQ, anyone?

"Friday will also be cloudy with rain in the west turning persistent and extending eastwards later in the day. Some heavy bursts possible. Afternoon highs of 10 to 13 degrees. Light to moderate southerly breezes.:

" The weekend will have unsettled conditions, with periods of wet and windy weather alternating with sunshine and showers, some heavy, with an increased risk of hail and thunder. Winds will be predominantly south to southwest in direction with temperatures falling back close to normal."

Long may it continue, we're ready for the sun!
