Get out the barbecue and bask in the sun with “a beautiful weekend ahead”

It’s time to get the barbecues out and bask in the sun with a “very nice weekend ahead”, according to meteorologist Alan O’Reilly.

Met Éireann is forecasting temperatures of up to 20C for the next three days, with dry and clear conditions throughout the weekend.

People are urged to enjoy it while they can, with more unstable conditions on the way next week.

On Information breakfast this morning Carlow Weather forecaster Alan O’Reilly said it was sunny throughout the next three days.

“Yes indeed, it’s going to be a beautiful beautiful day today and a very beautiful weekend,” he said.

“It’s definitely time to get the barbecues out and get ready for some late spring sunshine. Have a nice weekend ahead.

He said temperatures would reach 20C and “maybe even 21C” tomorrow with plenty of sunshine, particularly in the south of the country.

He said there won’t be record high temperatures but “with light winds and sunny winds and sunshine it’s going to be nice and warm”.

“The only thing is if you’re staying outside, maybe camping, it’s going to be cold at night,” he said.

“It’s going to be some chilly nights, so maybe if you’re on the patio it’s going to be chilly later in the night, but it’s definitely going to be nice weather during the day.”

Mr O’Reilly said a jet stream was behind the recent choppy weather but a high-pressure system is now pushing it away from the country.

He said people should take advantage of the weather with a turn from Monday.

“Make the most of three days because unfortunately it’s going to be cooler and more unsettled from Monday,” he said.

“There has been a lot of uncertainty over the weather patterns but it looks like we are going to see a return to cloudy and rainy weather with temperatures dropping back down to around normal or even a bit low so make the most of the weekend .”
