Northern Ireland will bask in more Spring sunshine today (Friday), but the high temperatures will continue to bring a pollen warning.

Friday, 16th April 2021, 8:16 am

Forecasters at the Met Office in Northern Ireland say today will be “dry and bright with some sunny spells”.

It will become rather warm inland during sunny spells after a chilly start, but slightly cooler around the Co Down coast due to onshore winds.

The maximum temperature will be 14 °C.

There will be some early evening sunshine in the east, but cloud soon increases from the west to give a dry but cloudy night.

The minimum temperature will be 2 °C.

The pollen count remains high today and for the next few days before dipping to medium levels on Monday. Tree pollen - mainly birch, ash and some willow - is in peak period.
