Bring on the 99s and sun cream!

For many parts of the country, people are opening curtains to a blue sky and the sun beaming down.

And when this happens, we have to check how the day (and the weekend) is looking weather-wise.

So off we go to check the forecast, with our fingers crossed it’ll be good news.

And low and behold it is!

We see plenty of “dry”, “sunny spells” and the temperatures just outside the 20s.

Today (Saturday)

A mostly dry day with sunny spells.

There is just the chance of a few localised showers developing towards evening.

Highest temperatures of 15 to 19 degrees and light southeast or variable breezes.

Tomorrow (Sunday)

Many areas will have a dry day, although there will be some light rain here or there, mainly over the western half of the country.

The best of the sunshine will be in the east where it will be warmest.

Highest temperatures of 15 to 19 degrees.

So get out there and enjoy the sunny weekend!
