Northern Ireland to bask in sunshine as fine weather returns
Temperatures in Northern Ireland are set to soar as the weekend approaches.
Met Office forecaster Luke Miall said the outlook was "looking pretty good" for the next week.
"Friday and into the weekend there is going to be plenty of sunny weather around," he said.
"For many it is going to be a fine and dry day. As we go through Friday we will see temperatures building into the high teens, and into the weekend things will climb into the 20s across Northern Ireland, reaching 22 or 23C on Sunday.
"Into next week there is the possibility of temperatures reaching the mid to possibly high 20s."
