Giving an update as to what this week's weather will pan out like, Met Éireann said that Paddy's Day will be a "dry and mostly sunny day nationwide". 

It's not often the sun shines, which makes it all the sweeter when it does... and it sounds like St Patrick has put in a good word with the man upstairs as the country is to have a "dry and mostly sunny" Paddy's Day this year.

Saying that frost and fog will clear early Wednesday morning, here's what forecasters had to say:

"Frost and fog will clear on St. Patrick's Day morning leaving a dry and mostly sunny day. There is just the chance of some cloud moving in across west Connacht and north Ulster later in the day. Highest temperatures ranging from just 10 or 11 degrees on the north coast to 16 or 17 degrees in south Munster and south Leinster with light northwest breezes.

"Cloud is expected to spread southwards over Ireland during Wednesday night with a few patches of drizzle possible. Minimum temperatures of 5 to 8 degrees, occurring early in the night."

The rest of the week will bring mostly dry and settled weather with Met Éireann saying:


"Early indications suggest that high pressure will continue to dominate the weather over Ireland this weekend bringing mostly dry and settled weather conditions."

We love to hear it.
