The weather during the early days of the coming week will turn much cooler with daytime temperatures struggling to reach into double figures, which is stark contrast to the warm conditions of recent days. Dublin Airport touched 19.2c on Friday, just 0.4c off the October 31st (Halloween) record temperatures set up Shannon Airport in 1995 when mercury levels there reached 19.6c.
