Temperatures set to soar for Easter weekend

High winds and heavy rain are expected to continue to dominate the weather conditions throughout most of the country today and tomorrow, but we can expect much warmer conditions as we approach the Easter weekend.

Met Eireann’s status yellow and orange weather warnings are expected to remain in place until 6pm this evening.

While it will remain cold and cloudy with outbreaks of patchy rain until the middle of the week, temperatures will gradually climb into the mid to high teens from Wednesday, with highs of 20c expected on Good Friday.

A spokesperson from Met Eireann said, “For the rest of the coming week, apart from a few light showers, it looks like it will be mainly dry with sunny spells.”

“”Winds will remain moderate East or Southeast and it will gradually become a degree or so milder day by day, so with temperatures on Good Friday afternoon expected to range from 15C along exposed coasts to as high as 18 to 20C elsewhere.”
