And the west and the midlands will see the best of it.

It seems our little spell of autumn sunshine is set to continue for at least a few more days.

The latest national forecast is predicting the next few days to be sunny and dry, with temperatures set to rise to as high as 23 degrees this coming Saturday.

And early indications are showing west and midlands on a day where good sunshine should hit the east of the country.

Here’s what’s in store:

Thursday: will be dry everywhere with long sunny spells. Highest temperatures of 18 to 23 degrees- warmest inland, but fresher near south and east coasts due to onshore breezes.

Friday: Another warm and sunny day with good sunshine but southeasterly winds will be fresher. Highs of 17 to 21 degrees, warmest across the west of the country.

Saturday: Warmest day of current spell, temperatures reaching 22 or 23 degrees in some parts of the west and midlands with good sunshine.

However, outbreaks of rain are expected in the afternoon and evening in western coastal counties, extending to the rest of Ireland overnight.

Sunday: Sunday will be a little cooler, but still not all that bad.

Rain will clear the east coast during the morning, and it’ll be clear and dry elsewhere. Bright and sunny in the afternoon with just the odd shower, feeling fresher with highs of 16 to 19 degrees in southwest breezes.

Hundred percent we’ll take this!
