Met Eireann forecast unseasonably warm weekend as temperatures crawl back up to mid teens

You can leave the hat and scarf at home this weekend as Met Eireann have forecast unseasonably warm weather in store for Ireland.

Irish forecasters have predicted temperatures will reach the mid teens with highs of 14C on Saturday, which is above normal temperatures for this late in November. However, the incredibly mild weather is not expected to last as temperatures are set to return to normal next week.

For Saturday's weather forecast, a Met Eireann forecaster said: "Milder than normal for the time of year, with highest temperatures of 11 to 14 degrees."

Meanwhile, today will see "scattered showers and sunny spells" with any rain clearing over most parts of the country this afternoon. The rest of the weekend is expected to bring occasional showers and outbreaks of rain with good dry periods in between.

Here is a more detailed look at the weather over the next few days:

Friday, November 25

This morning there will be scattered showers and sunny spells. Moderate to fresh southwesterly winds, strong for a time along west and northwest coasts. Most areas will become dry by this afternoon, with showers slower to clear from the north. Cloud will increase through the afternoon. Highest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees.

Many areas will be dry early tonight under mostly cloudy skies with scattered outbreaks of drizzle in Atlantic counties. Turning windier overnight with rain developing in most areas by dawn. Southerly winds will increase fresh to strong, becoming very strong in the southwest by morning. Lowest temperatures of 6 to 10 degrees.

Saturday, November 26

Windy tomorrow with strong southerly winds, easing somewhat during the afternoon. A dull or misty day with outbreaks of rain, most persistent along the south coast with good dry spells elsewhere during the afternoon. Milder than normal for the time of year, with highest temperatures of 11 to 14 degrees. Rain will become heavier in most places in the evening.

On Saturday night, outbreaks of rain will be heavy in places early in the night, but will clear eastwards before midnight. The rest of the night will be dry for most aside from a few showers. Southwest winds largely easing light to moderate, remaining fresh or strong along Atlantic coasts. Lowest temperatures of 5 to 8 degrees.

Sunday, November 27

Good dry and bright periods for most areas although there will be occasional showers, mainly in Atlantic counties. Highest temperatures of 9 to 11 degrees with moderate southerly breezes.

On Sunday night most areas will be dry and clear, with isolated showers near coasts. Near calm conditions will allow areas of mist or fog to form. A touch of frost is possible, with lowest temperatures of 0 to 4 degrees.

Monday, November 28

Fog likely in the morning, slowly lifting for a mainly dry day with sunny spells. Well scattered showers will feed into Atlantic areas in a light northwest airflow. Highest temperatures of 7 to 11 degrees. Monday night is currently looking to be cold, clear and frosty, with lows of -1 to 4 degrees, although there is some uncertainty yet.

Tuesday, December 1

There is some uncertainty for Tuesday but currently it looks to be a dry day but cloudier, with rain possibly pushing into western or southwestern fringes later. Light or moderate southeast winds. Highest temperatures of 6 to 10 degrees.

Further out, midweek weather is still uncertain but signs are trending towards a cool easterly airflow later in the week with decent dry spells.
