Ireland weather: Met Eireann pinpoint best day as country to bask in hazy conditions to end August

Ireland will bask in scenes of hazy sunshine and warm temperatures as the end of August approaches.

That's according to Met Éireann, who's latest five-day forecast has been published on Monday morning and makes for great reading for this time of year.

Usually, we'd have needed to pack away the shorts and the sun cream and broken out the rain jackets, waterproof trousers and jumpers for autumn at this point.

But you can keep them in storage for another week at least, as the national forecaster have brought some good news for the next few days at least.

Now, we must pre-empt this by saying that Monday morning will start with some heavy rain.

But things are going to clear up by the time the evening rolls around, with Met Éireann saying: "Sunny spells and scattered showers will follow for the rest of the day. Highest temperatures of 17 to 22 degrees, warmest in the southeast"

You'll wake up on Tuesday to a fair bit of cloudiness in the skies, but, again, this will clear out as the day progresses for a "dry afternoon".

Rain could move in from the southwest as the evening progresses, Met Éireann predict, but things will remain warm with temperatures hitting highs of 17 to 22C.

Wednesday is looking like the best day for weather, with the forecast predicting: "good sunshine with some passing showers, mainly in the north and west with largely dry conditions elsewhere. Highest temperatures of 16 to 21 degrees, warmest in the southeast."

Largely dry to start on Thursday with "sunny spells and well scattered showers", but things will go dull in the evening, with "a spell of rain moving into the west and northwest in the afternoon or evening, the timing is still uncertain. Highs of 16 to 21 degrees"

Friday looks to finish off the week strongly, with current models from Met Eireann looking like it'll be "dry weather overall with just well scattered showers. A mix of cloud and occasional sunshine. Highest temperatures of 15 to 19 degrees"
