The country has been graced with some unseasonably warm weather over the past few days.

Temperatures have rocketed to as high as 17C and looks as though we are set for a lovely week ahead before the Easter Bank Holiday.

The mercury will soar to 18C this good Friday but forecasters have warned that it will be a tale of two halves this weekend.

Met Eireann meteorologist, Gerry Murphy, said: “In the run up to Easter, as high pressure establishes across the country our weather will become cooler and mainly dry with sunny spells.

“Tomorrow and Good Friday temperatures are expected to reach around 15 to 18 Celsius across southern and western areas in the best of the sunshine. It will be noticeably cooler in the east and north with easterly breezes and temperatures of around 10 to 13 degrees.

He added: “We’re forecasting a dry day on Saturday with temperatures of around 10 to 13 Celsius, but we’re going to see a big change on Easter Sunday as rain moves down over the country followed by a much colder northerly airflow, with daytime temperatures on Easter Monday of just 3 to 8 degrees.

“Along with the lower temperatures early next week, it’ll turn much more unsettled with spells of rain and blustery, wintry, showers.”

And right now it looks as though the month of April will follow a similar path with some mixed weather predicted throughout the month.

Week one and two of April are set to be a mix of warm and mild but thankfully it will be mostly dry across the country.

However week three is when things will see a real change with temperatures set to really drop with a high risk of rain an even some snow and frost in areas.

Week 1 (Friday 02 April to Thursday 08 April)

High pressure positioned in the Atlantic is expected to allow a cold northerly air-flow to prevail during the week bringing showery and breezy weather. Temperatures are expected to be a few degrees below the April average with a risk of some frost and also some wintry falls on high ground early in the week. Rainfall totals look set to be slightly below average overall but some eastern parts may see amounts closer to average with rainfall most likely early in the week. Thundery downpours and hail may bring some hazardous conditions in parts.

Week 2 (Friday 09 April to Thursday 15 April)

Changeable weather is expected during week 2. Mean air temperatures are forecast to be close to average for April, so milder than the previous week. Rainfall amounts are expected to be above normal with showers or longer spells of rain at times. Of note, is the forecast high pressure over southern & central Europe bringing above normal temperatures and drier weather than normal there.

Week 3 (Friday 16 April to Thursday 22 April)

By forecast week 3, there is lower confidence and only slight trends indicated. A changeable weather pattern is predicted with typical April weather forecast. Mean air temperatures will be close to the April average whilst there is a signal for near-normal rainfall amounts with some showers at times, these possibly heavy. A trend for that persistent high pressure zone over southern Europe continues.

Week 4 (Friday 23 April to Thursday 29 April)

At week 4, forecast confidence is low. There is a trend for mean air temperatures to be near the April average whilst a showery setup may develop bringing an increased risk of heavy downpours and higher rainfall totals than normal.
