Good news for those making early weekend plans as it looks set to be a hot one, according to Met Eireann.

After yesterday’s sunny spells, the next few days are expected to be cooler with temperatures on the rise again from Friday onwards.

Temperatures of up to 20C can be expected later in the week, just in time for Bruce Springsteen fans, who will flock to Croke Park to see The Boss in action.

Umbrellas

However, it’s not time to put the umbrellas away yet, with some unsettled conditions forecasted along with the hotter weather.

Joanna Donnelly of Met Eireann said people could expect slightly cooler conditions in the run-up to the weekend. “It will start good today, it will be dry and sunny with some cloud from the east. It will be a degree or two cooler than yesterday,” Ms Donnelly told the Herald.

Highest temperatures today will be 12-15C and winds will be light to moderate easterly. “On Thursday it will cloudy and some rain in parts, with maximum temperatures between 13-14C,” she said.

“Friday will be warmer by a degree or so, although there will be heavy showers in the evening. Maximum temperatures are up to 20C.”

It is set to be a busy weekend in the capital with Ireland also taking on Holland at the Aviva on Friday night.
