Weather models show temperatures could soar as high as 22°C in parts of Ireland on Friday, and into Saturday!
The official Met Éireann forecast states:
“Dry, settled and increasingly warm conditions developing over the next few days, but turning cooler and more changeable as the weekend progresses.
Thursday night: Dry with patchy cloud and clear spells on Thursday night and lows of 7 to 10 degrees. A few mist patches possible. Light east to southeast breezes will be moderate on west and north coasts.
Friday: Good Friday will be dry and warm with long spells of, at times hazy, spring sunshine. Top temperatures 17 to 21 degrees, but a few degrees cooler in the coastal fringes of the east and south. Light winds and sea breezes. Dry overnight with thickening cloud in the west and northwest. Lowest temperatures 6 to 10 degrees. A few patches of mist will form in the light, variable breezes.
Saturday: Saturday will be another warm and mostly dry day with any early mist soon clearing. Long spells of hazy spring sunshine look likely to prevail through much of Leinster and Munster. Thicker cloud in Ulster and Connacht though, will produce some patchy rain or drizzle there by the end of the day. Top temperatures of 16 to 21 degrees, but a few degrees cooler under the cloud in parts of west and northwest. Light winds. Variable cloud amounts with patchy light rain, drizzle and mist extending southeastwards over the country, but occasional clear intervals occurring also. Lows of 5 to 8 degrees in the west and north, 9 to 11 degrees further south and east. Light northwest or variable breezes.
Sunday: Rather cloudy on Easter Sunday with patchy rain or drizzle, but good dry periods also and perhaps some limited bright or sunny breaks occurring towards evening. Cooler than recent days but maximum temperatures still holding above seasonal average at 13 to 16 degrees in light southerly or variable breezes. Rain looks likely to push in over the country from the Atlantic on Sunday night in a freshening southwesterly breeze, with a clearance to showers following into western areas, possibly before dawn as winds veer westerly.”
A lot of uncertainty on the models for Sunday and Monday with a risk of rain moving in but far from clear if it will or where it will hit. pic.twitter.com/x4T2fMpY6D

Latest high temps forecast for Friday make for nice reading and looking warmer here than many parts of Spain. A Good Friday indeed 😊 pic.twitter.com/NW5lkkby7M
