Fiiiinaaallly - it's starting to seem like our valiant attempts to crawl out of the cold, deep dark hole that is winter are not all in vain.
This weekend is looking like it'll be the beautiful beginning of chilling outside and - God forbid - maybe even not bringing a coat with us?
Met Eireann's early weather forecast has Saturday down to experience highs of up to 17 degrees, dry and mild with good sunny spells and light southerly breezes.
Enjoy it as much as you can, because Sunday will be a slightly cooler, cloudier day.
There'll be some patchy rain or drizzle for a time, mainly over the northern half of the country, highest temperatures of 9 to 13 degrees with those lovely light southerly breezes again.
This Friday will also be dry with sunny spells, and temps of 11 to 15 degrees, AKA perfect for after work beers outside.
