The temperature at Shannon Airport reached 17.3c on Monday making it the hottest day of 2015 to date in County Clare.
The good weather will continue until Friday after which less settled conditions are expected.
An area of high pressure centred over Ireland and Britain has kept away the Atlantic weather systems that usually dominate our weather. This high pressure will weaken and drift into the Continent later this week allowing bands of rain or showers to once again affect the County.
Temperatures will rise to 14-15c and as high as 16c or 17c in areas sheltered from the easterly breeze during today, Wednesday, Thursday and for much of Friday.
Cloud and light rain will extend across the county from the west late on Friday. It will remain overcast with patches of drizzle or light rain at times on Saturday. Sunday will be drier and brighter. There are signs that high pressure may build from the southwest next week bringing the possibility of another spell of dry and settled weather.
