Leeside is set to be hotter than Barcelona and Madrid over the long weekend with predicted temperatures between 19 and 21 degrees.

Across the city, people enjoyed the sunny weather on Good Friday with more sunny spells on the way, at least until Bank Holiday Monday.

It makes for a dramatic change compared to last Monday which Met Éireann revealed was the wettest day in April since records began with 54.6mm of rain recorded in just a 24-hour period.

As Cork starts to get a glimpse at summer-like weather, it also means that hayfever season isn’t too far away either.

Met Éireann has forecasted that there will be high levels of tree pollen throughout the weekend.

For those who have allergies, it is advised that they should wear a hat and to wash your face and hands after being outside and when indoors to make sure all windows are closed.
