High Pressure over Ireland is to deliver settled conditions across the country until at least the early days of next week.
As is often the case in March, an area of high pressure can become firmly established over Western Europe keeping Atlantic weather systems at bay.
After a rather cloudy weekend, sunny conditions can be expected for much of the week.
Temperatures will be around average or slightly above average for the time of year reaching 10-14c, the warmest temperatures across in Western locations. It will be cooler in eastern and southeastern coastal counties due to the prevailing easterly winds.
The nights will cold everywhere with foggy conditions developing and temperatures dipping to between 1c and 4c.
Met Éireann says, “The weather is going to continue dry and settled for the rest of the week and over the coming weekend with an anticyclone/high pressure system slow moving near Ireland and Britain blocking out the Atlantic rain belts. Winds will be from between southeast and northeast in direction; mostly moderate in strength but fresh at times in some coastal areas and over high ground. Cloud amounts will vary through the week but all areas will have some pleasant sunny spells.”
