Yessss – finally some weather news we want to write about.
Temperatures are set to reach highs of up to 17?C today as southwesterly breezes are sorting us right out and finally giving winter the boot.
According to Met Éireann:
''Very mild today with highest temperatures of 13 to 16 or 17 degrees Celsius, in moderate southwesterly breezes. Rather cloudy and locally damp to begin, but spells of spring sunshine will develop in many places.''
Very mild. Highs 13 to 16, or 17 Celcius. Dry with spells of sunshine. Patchy drizzle may develop on west and northwest coasts later however

Good stuff all 'round!
Buuuut, you should also expect to hear 'isn't it fierce mild?' about 4,000 times today.
It's a given. You've been warned.
