Will it be 99 weather?

Apart from a chance of a passing light shower on Tuesday, the week looks dry and settled with the only downside being some cold nights, according to

Forecaster Alan O'Reilly said: "The weekend also looks settled but milder, maybe even 18C with a brief Indian Summer possible!"

An Indian summer is a period of unseasonably warm, dry weather that sometimes occurs in spring and autumn in the Northern Hemisphere.

Met Éireann are already predicting temperatures as high as 16C on Saturday and Sunday in the Dolmen County.
