Irish citizens have been left baffled in the past couple of days by the presence of a mysterious yellow ball in the sky which seems to be emanating warmth and brightness.
Experts have suggested that the object is in fact 'the sun' and it has made a few visits to these shores before although we're struggling to remember. We'll take their word for it.
Most of us have been stuck in work all week so it's been hard to find time to reacquaint ourselves with our old friend so we're all hoping it'll stick around for the weekend.
But what does Met Éireann think?
It's set to be a bit of a mixed bag, really. The forecasters reckon that 'most areas will have good sunny spells' on Saturday with some outbreaks of rain in western counties, extending inland later. Despite that, temperatures could reach 19 degrees once again. Showers will continue in the west and north on Sunday on what is expected to be a 'cool and fresh' day with maximum temperatures of 14 degrees.
