Potential very warm spell ahead

Both GFS and ECM are going with the idea of high pressure over northern France gradually building Northwestwards over the coming weekend and early days of next week. MT hinted at this in his daily forecast this moring, but I thought i'd give the roller-coaster a little push start, and suggest temps well into the mid 20's by the middle of next week.
Its still a fair way out to reliably predict anything, but its looking good thus far.

ECM

Jean Byrne hinted at this last night; she said hopefully high pressure over Europe would be able to block any fronts that the new southerly airflow would bring and that temperatures should get up near 20C by Monday. Evelyn Cusack also said we could see 20C by Moday on Newstalk this morning.

Yes, an encouraging trend emerging. Would have preferred yesterday's ECM though which had the high more to the east with a volatile SE airflow over Ireland which had the potential to bring in some severe thunderstorms pluming up from the Bay of Biscay. However, some heat will be most welcome all the same, even if it is of the more non-descript type as per today's charts.

that certainly would be welcome. ............

but it would mess up my predictions for a 7.6c April in the Boards contest.

Does look likely to be a warm end to April and Start to MAy
