Met Éireann has said that high pressure will continue in the atmosphere, generating mild and dry conditions for the foreseeable future.

Weather expert Alan O´Reilly has predicted some good weather for the weekend, writing on Twitter “Fine days ahead for the rest of the week and the weekend also looks nice and settled with good sunshine too.”

However, he pointed out some discrepancies between two weather forecasters, The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) and the Global Forecast System (GFS). “The details around the weekend are little uncertain regarding temperatures, while the ECMWF has most areas over 20ºC the GFS brings cool air in for Sunday. Hopefully the GFS is wrong, and ECMWF is correct. One to watch.”
