The heatwave could be back - but only in some parts of the country

We're getting excited...

It's been a very meh week weather-wise but it looks like at least some of us in Ireland are in for some sunshine once again.

Met Éireann is predicting that Saturday will be warm and sunny with temperatures of between 17 and 23 degrees across the country.

It'll be warmest across Munster and southern Leinster, though there may be some some patchy light rain or drizzle near coastal areas.

The Midland Weather Channel, meanwhile, reckons that we'll see highs of 26 degrees on Sunday.

It's not all good news, though.

As the MWC explained this evening, Ireland is caught between two very different air masses.

"The difficulty with forecasting such conditions are that both scenarios as still a distinct possibility.

"At present it looks as though warm, possibly even hot, conditions will prevail in eastern areas, with wetter and cooler conditions favoured to the west of the country. This scenario will remain in place for the midweek period, with humid conditions likely towards the end of next week.

"There will however be a fair amount cloud around over the weekend, with some patches of rain or drizzle along western and northern coasts. The best of the sunshine will always be further to the east and south."

Sounds like only some of us will get to enjoy the good weather then.
