Today and Tomorrow's forecast
Saturday 18 April
Dry and sunny for the rest of the afternoon and clear through the evening.
Continuing dry and clear tonight. Winds will slacken over land and it will once again turn cold, lowest temperatures zero to 5 degrees, with a widespread slight grass frost.
Sunday 19 April
Another dry day on Sunday with plenty of sunshine in most parts of the country but becoming cloudier in the east during the afternoon. Moderate, locally fresh, easterly winds and highest temperatures of 10 to 15 degrees once again.
Monday: Still mostly dry but likely to be cloudier with the odd shower developing during the day, especially in Northern and Eastern areas. Highest temperatures of 11 to 14 degrees with light mainly East to Southeast breezes.
Tuesday looks mainly dry with more sunshine around again. Mainly light variable breezes so a little warmer even in inland Eastern parts with temperatures up to the mid teens or a little higher, and coastal fringes perhaps seeing some sea breezes keeping these parts a little fresher.
For the rest of the week: The settled weather will continue with spells of sunshine most days. Light to moderate Northeast breezes on Wednesday will bring the best temperatures of around 16 or 17 degrees to parts of the West and Southwest. A light North to Northeast breeze is expected on Thursday becoming variable on Friday. Depending on cloud cover and onshore breezes, temperatures are likely to still be above normal in the sheltered sunny areas. The nights will be cool with temperatures falling to around 2 to 5 degrees by dawn and grass frost for a short time, as well as mist and fog patches.
During Friday, more especially towards the end of the day and for next weekend, there looks like a return to more unsettled conditions as the high pressure influence declines.
