There's FINALLY some good news on the weather front today

The news we all needed.

After what feels like months of weather warnings, it looks likes things might finally be picking up.

It was possibly the longest winter in recorded history but finally this weekend has brought gorgeous sunny (and dare we say warm) spells across the country - as well as scattered showers.

Though the rain's not quite gone, we can expect more and more sunshine this week.

Met Éireann is predicting that today will see a mix of sunny spells and showers with heavier, thundery bouts of rain in parts of the country.

Temperatures are set to reach up to 14 degrees today and it'll feel mild outside of the showers.

The rain will die out later for a clear night with some patches of mist and fog throughout. Lowest temperatures of 3 to 6 degrees are expected.

The mist and fog will disappear early tomorrow, revealing a sunny day with some cloudy periods.

There'll be some rain along the southwest and west coasts later in the day.

As for the following days? It'll be clearer but cool and breezy on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Met Éireann is forecasting sunnier but changeable weather as the week goes on, with less and less rain as we head into the weekend - far from ideal but we'll take it.

Here's the current three-day forecast.
