General : A lot of dry weather in store with temperatures around normal (mid to high teens) or slightly above at times. But a few weak weather fronts are expected to move down from the north over the weekend and early next week, but amounts of rain should be very small. Winds mainly from a northerly direction but generally only moderate in strength. Thursday night will be rather cool with clear spells. Lowest temperatures 6 to 10 C.
Friday will be a dry, bright, day in most places, with sunny spells at times. But increasing cloud will bring some showers to the north and northwest later in the day. Top temperatures 15 to 21 C., best over Munster and south Leinster. Friday night will have a mixture of clear spells and cloudy periods with a little drizzle in places, with lowest temperatures 7 to 11 C.
Mostly dry and bright on Saturday with some sunny spells, but cloud is likely to increase in the north and northwest, and some rain is likely there late in the day or after dark. Top temperatures 14 to 18 C., generally, but around 19 or 20 C., over more southern areas in sunshine.
Sunday and Monday are likely to be fairly cloudy days with some light rain and drizzle in places. But rainfall amounts should be small and some dry, bright spells will develop at times, giving a little sunshine in places. Top temperatures in the mid to high teens.
