Warm weather to stay until next Friday

Sunshine makes a comback

Met Éireann forecasts warm sunshine

It will become very warm today with long spells of sunshine across most of the country. Maximum temperatures generally ranging 25 to 29 degrees but slightly less warm along the coast due to sea-breezes. There is a small chance of a few localised heavy showers breaking out during the evening.

Staying quite warm overnight with largely clear skies, but a few patches of mist or low cloud will form around dawn. Lowest overnight temperatures generally 14 to 16 degrees but a little cooler in north Ulster with a mostly light northeasterly breeze.

Another very warm day on Monday with plenty of sunshine, albeit with patchy cloud at times. An isolated heavy shower may break out through the midlands during the afternoon or evening. Maximum temperatures generally ranging 24 to 28 degrees but slightly less warm in northern and eastern coastal areas with a moderate onshore east to northeast breeze.

Overview: Very warm or hot with plenty of sunshine.

Monday night: Warm and humid on Monday night with mostly clear skies but with cloudier conditions along the north coast. Temperatures dropping no lower than 14 to 17 degrees generally in light northeast breezes.

Tuesday: A very warm day on Tuesday with virtually unbroken sunshine. Maximum temperatures ranging 24 to 28 degrees generally but a few degrees less warm at the coast with sea-breezes developing.
