"Some early mistiness, particularly around the east coast. Quite extensive higher cloud, but staying dry with brighter spells increasingly breaking through during the afternoon. Light southerly breezes, freshening around the coasts. Maximum temperature 17°C," reads the weather forecast for Northern Ireland on the Met Office website.

"A mild and dry day. Higher cloud gradually thinning and breaking through the morning, leading to a fine, sunny afternoon, which will feel pleasant as the winds fall light. Maximum temperature 16°C," said the Met Office of Tuesday.

The temperature in the Spanish city of Barcelona on Monday is not expected to exceed 15°C, according to the Met Office.
