The weather this week is going to be unreal, but there's some bad news

It won't last lads.

Is summer finally choosing to stick around? Quite possibly.

The lads at Met Eireann are predicting a pretty gorgeous week of weather for Ireland, but it might not hold into the weekend.

According to the national forecaster, we're in for warm temperatures early on in the week, but it will take a turn.

"Tuesday night will be mainly dry and cold. Temperatures will fall to between 3 and 7 degrees with light variable winds or calm conditions. A few mist patches may form also."

"Much of Wednesday looks like being mainly dry with just a few isolated showers and some bright or sunny spells. With light variable winds, highest temperatures will reach 15 to 18 degrees. Later in the day, cloud will increase from the Atlantic with outbreaks of rain developing in Western parts and then the rainy weather becoming more widespread overnight."

"Thursday will bring showers or longer spells of rain with a rainbelt stalling over the country. Some Northernmost parts may stay drier and it may also brighten in the Southwest later. Highest temperatures 15 to 17 degrees with light variable winds."

"Friday looks like a drier day for most places with patchy rain dying out and a few brighter spells developing in light to moderate Northerly winds."

"At the moment unsettled weather looks like following for Saturday. Temperatures around normal."

Okay so not the worst in the world, but we'd really like if the sun could hang around.
