It's been pretty grim weather-wise recently but fear not, sun is on the way and just in time for the bank holiday weekend.

Temperatures are set to soar over the coming days in Ireland, with reports that it may even be hotter than Spain. Spain, no less! We go wild for it being hotter than Spain.

Tomorrow (Thursday) will be grand enough, but it's Good Friday where those temperatures really go up a gear. We're looking at around 17 to 21 degrees. That's BBQ weather, that is. (Of course it's only a bit of fish for the more religious of you out there.)

According to Met Eireann: "Good Friday will be dry and warm with long spells of, at times hazy, spring sunshine."

It's more of the same Saturday, with another warm and mostly dry day in store. Met Eireann says: "Long spells of hazy spring sunshine look likely to prevail through much of Leinster and Munster. Thicker cloud in Ulster and Connacht though will produce some patchy rain or drizzle there by the end of the day."

Easter Sunday doesn't sound great but you'll be needing some time to sit indoors and eat all those eggs. It's set to be cloudy with "patchy rain or drizzle" and temperatures above seasonal average at 13 to 16 degrees, however you may just get out for an Easter walk as there will be "good dry periods also and perhaps some limited bright or sunny breaks occurring towards evening."

Bank Holiday Monday then will be a "significantly cooler day seems likely with scattered showers feeding in off the Atlantic, as remaining rain in the east clears out".

So there you have, get planning something outdoorsy, or at the very least, a bag of cans.
