Today’s bright start to the week is expected to last right through to early evening.

Forecasters are expecting the weather to turn cloudy around teatime and remain overcast overnight.

Temperatures are set to hit highs of 8°C in late afternoon, but with a bit of a breeze it will feel two or three degrees colder.

Tuesday, March 22

The sunshine is set to continue this week

Early cloud cover should give way to more sunshine by mid-morning on Tuesday and the sun is set to keep shining apart from a brief period of cloud in mid-afternoon.

It will feel warmer than today, with highs of 11°C and only a gentle breeze to cool things down.

The clear skies will mean temperatures dip overnight, however, with a low of 6°C by early morning.

Wednesday, March 23

Wednesday is set to be clear all day, with the sun quickly raising temperatures once it starts to climb.

The mercury is forecast to peak in early afternoon, with highs of 14°C.

But again, the clear skies will see a sharp fall in temperature once the sun sets, with a low of just 5°C by early morning.

Thursday, March 24

Despite more cloud cover, Thursday is tipped to be the hottest day of the week.

Sunny intervals will see the temperature rise as high as 15°C in early to mid afternoon, with little breeze.

And the increased cloud means temperatures will not drop as far as earlier in the week, with a predicted overnight low of of 7°C.

Friday, March 25

Another bright and sunny day, though not quite as warm as Thursday, with highs of 14°C at lunchtime, cooling a touch during the afternoon.

A clear night will again see temperatures fall as low as 6°C.

Saturday and Sunday, March 26 and 27

The dry weather is set to last through the weekend, though with increased cloud cover.

And it won’t feel quite as warm, with highs of 11°C on Saturday and 12°C on Sunday, which is likely to see the lion’s share of the sunshine.
