How hot is Ireland about to get? Met Eireann's full 72-hour weather forecast for best days of the year so far

By Cormac O'Shea

Met Eireann are forecasting a weekend of heat in Ireland as temperatures soar into the twenties right across the country.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday are all forecast to be stunning days with beaches around the country likely to be thronged with people.

The mercury will rise to 20C in parts on Friday although coastal areas could be slightly cooler at times - sunshine is expected countrywide.

A Met Eireann forecaster said: "It will start rather cloudy on Friday with a few showers in the northwest. However, sunny spells will develop during the course of the day. Top temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees generally but somewhat cooler in coastal areas of the west and northwest. Fresh southwest winds will decrease light by evening."

Saturday is looking like another fine day, although be prepared for the odd shower, especially in coastal areas.

The forecaster added: "Mist and any fog will clear to leave a mostly dry day with a mix of cloud and sunny spells, the best of sunshine will be later in the day. There is just the small chance of the odd shower breaking out in the afternoon. Maximum temperatures of 16 to 19 degrees in light southerly or variable breezes.

"Long clear spells on Saturday night with a few fog patches forming in light breezes. An isolated shower may drift in from the Irish Sea to affect some eastern counties. Lowest temperatures of 5 to 8 degrees in light east or northeast breezes."

And Sunday again could be a scorcher as temperatures stay towards 20C and long periods of sunshine are forecast, weather chiefs added: "Long spells of warm sunshine are expected on Sunday with just the small chance of a few showers developing in the west on Sunday afternoon. Maximum temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees generally but a little cooler on coasts as sea breezes develop.

"Mostly dry early on Sunday night with clear spells and lowest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees. However, rain will develop in the southwest before dawn on Monday."
