Early indications show the hot weather and sunshine could last until the middle of May after a miserable end to April, according to forecasters.

Temperatures will only be about 11-14 degrees, but thats all set to change tomorrow and by Monday half the country will be plastering natural yoghurt onto their burned Irish skin.

"Temperatures will pick up as we go through the the weekend as high pressure builds bringing warm air up from the south".

"On Monday temperatures will range from 13 to 19 degrees with highest values in Connacht and coolest on eastern coasts due to easterly breezes".

Things will pick up just in time for the weekend though, Saturday will be a brighter day with plenty of sunny spells.
