DON'T WORRY! We won't have to endure 'cold' too long - another hot spell coming next week

It's like we're living in a different continent today compared to yesterday - as temperatures have crashed more than 10 degrees from what we've been used to. 

It's been one of the driest and sunniest Spring seasons on record in many areas.  

However the relatively chilly conditions we'll be 'suffering' through today and in the next few days won't last too long. 

Irish Weather Online said that the outlook is that the weather will turn "generally warmer by middle of next week".

Prof Peter O'Donnell added: "Some suggestions are that the warm dome of high pressure we were enjoying last week will try to work its way back from the west, which could bring temperatures back into the 20s eventually."

Met Eireann has largely agreed with the prediction of a return to warmer weather next week.

Met Eireann forecasters said: "Current indications suggest next week will bring largely dry conditions with sunny spells and no more than moderate northerly breezes."

In the meantime, today will see highs of between 14 to 17 degrees Celsius. 

Tomorrow will see similarly temperatures but showers moving over the country. 

Friday will become quite windy with outbreaks of rain heavy at times.

Saturday also be quite breezy and cool with further outbreaks of light rain.
