Fine spell to keep up... but don't get your shorts out yet
More dry weather is on the way this weekend - but don't get out your shorts and sun cream out just yet.
Dry, cool weather with a smattering of rain is on the cards as temperatures drop slightly over the coming days.
People have been making the most of the spring sunshine this week with plenty of park lunch dates, as temperatures hit up to 16 degrees.
While largely dry weather will continue over the weekend, Met Eireann have warned to expect cooler temperatures of between 10-12 degrees.
"The weather is to remain dry but it will get cooler," forecaster John Eagleton told the Herald.
"The temperatures across Dublin today and tomorrow will hit 13 degrees max - and it will drop down to about 10 or 11 degrees."
While the dry weather is set to continue, Mr Eagleton said that the best of the weather this week is unfortunately behind us.
"While the weather will stay mostly dry, it probably wont be as sunny as it was over the last couple of days," he said.
"There is more of a north-east breeze, so it will feel cool in the next few days, with the odd shower here and there.
"Today is going to be cooler along the coast and temperatures might drop by a degree or two in some parts."
The midlands are also in for similarly cooler temperatures, with 12 degrees set to be the norm in Leinster.
Cloudier conditions in the south are expected to bring occasional rainfall later. It will be warmest in the west, with top temperatures of about 15 degrees.
