Met Eireann says that the weather this weekend is going to be UNREAL
Summer, heya hun!
Well lads, it is about bloody time we got some sun!
The weekend weather forecast, according to Met Eireann, is actually looking gorge.
As in, temperatures up to 20 degrees. Yes please.
The full Met Eireann forecast reads:
"For Saturday, most areas will stay dry with warm sunny periods, although high cloud through the day will make the sunshine a little hazy at times."
"Thickening cloud from the southwest may bring a little patchy rain to Munster coasts by evening time. Highest temperatures will range 16 to 20 degrees Celsius. Breezes mainly from a southeast direction and moderate in strength but increasing fresh to strong at times along the southwest coast."
"Sunday will see a locally damp start with heavy rain also affecting southern counties. Heavy thundery rain in the south will slowly push northwards through the day with high accumulations possible in some relatively short durations."
"Spot flooding is likely. North Ulster may however hold dry and bright until later in the afternoon. Feeling humid, with highs of 15 to 20 degrees Celsius (south to north), all in a moderate easterly breezes."
You know what? We're not even concerned about the possible rain, as long as the sun makes an appearance between showers.
And as for next week, things look even better.
Latest indications are for very warm and humid weather next week, with temperatures several degrees above normal, generally into the low 20s, and even a little higher on some of the days later in the week.
So, heatwave central basically.
Whilst there will be lengthy spells of summer sunshine, some heavy thundery showers will break out from time to time too. Easterly breezes will be replaced by more southerly ones later in the week.
