The region is set to bask in another warm day tomorrow after a few glorious days but Met Eireann has warned of some clouds and rain in the days ahead.

While tomorrow will see highest temperatures range from 11 to 15 degrees and sunny spells, the meteorological service said it could be somewhat cloudier near the West coast.

Met Eireann added that it will be mild at first but it will turn fresher and cooler over the weekend with the possibility of rainfall on Friday night and early Saturday morning, with cold nights resulting in some frost and fog.

Friday itself will bring some clouds and patchy drizzle in places.

However, pockets of bright weather will occur over parts of east Munster with highs of 11 to 14C.

Early rain on Saturday morning over Munster should clear quickly with bright sunny spells taking its place.

It will also be bright on Sunday with a mix of sunny spells and cloudy periods and dry apart from the odd light shower.
