Any lingering mist and fog will quickly clear on Friday morning to leave a warm and mainly dry day with sunny spells, according to Met Éireann.

Top temperatures of 18°C to 23°C are expected with a moderate southerly breeze. Winds may be strong along Atlantic coasts.

On Friday night, winds will fall light with mist and fog developing. It will be mild and humid with lowest temperatures of 12°C to 15°C in light to moderate south to southeast breezes.


Saturday will be a warm day but quite mixed in terms of cloud and sunshine. In the east, it will be mainly dry at first with some sunny spells, Met Éireann said.

Western coastal counties will be cloudier with outbreaks of showery rain which will spread further eastwards during the afternoon. Highest temperatures of 19°C to 23°C.

On Saturday night, it will be mainly dry with just the odd spot of drizzle. Lows will range from 13°C to 15°C, in light variable breezes.


Sunday will be mostly dry with some sunny spells but later sunshine might become a little hazy as a warm front is likely to approach from the Atlantic, Met Éireann said.

A few spots of rain or drizzle will affect Atlantic coastal counties. Top temperatures will reach 19°C to 23°C in just light variable breezes.

Sunday night will be dry with lows of 10°C to 12°C in light breezes.
