Fine weather set to continue for bank holiday

As the bank holiday kicks off today, Met Éireann has said that the weather will remain mild but it is next week when temperatures will peak.

Parts of the country can expect to see up to 23 degrees from Monday, but until then we will have to make do with temperatures in the late teens.

"Today we might expect 13° - 18° best in the south-east," said Eoin Sherlock from Met Éireann.

"Tomorrow there is going to be a similar start to the day we're going to have some light patchy rain and drizzle spreading across, once again that will improve during the day and we can expect highs of 13°-17°

"Going into Sunday we can expect it to become warmer we can expect in high teens, maybe 20°/21° at times on Sunday and Monday."
