The weather is set to pick up nicely next week

We need some good weather after this weekend.

It's been a pretty dreary few days on the weather front with rainfall warnings abound since last Thursday.

Thankfully, Met Éireann is forecasting that the week will start with dry, sunny weather on Monday morning. The temperature will be 14 to 17 degrees Celsius, with moderate breezes.

The rain won't be leaving us alone (it never really does), and there will be showers, but they will clear up by Monday night.

As for Tuesday, there will also be "some good sunshine." Met Éireann says:

"Staying dry and pleasant in most areas for daylight hours, however cloud will slowly build and rain will arrive into south and southwest counties through the evening. Highest temperatures will range 15 to 18 or 19 degrees."

There will be rain after dark but that's grand, you'll be in bed by then.

Wednesday will be a bit rainier, but temperatures will stay around the 15-20 degrees mark.

Thursday will be nicer again. Met Éireann says:

"Overall dry with sunny spells - just a few light showers, mainly near west and northwest coasts. Highest temperatures 14 to 18 degrees, in light northwest breezes, again best values across southern counties. Feeling quite cool after-dark."
