"Good sunny spells" forecasted for this weekend with temperatures to hit 25 degrees
This weekend is set to be another scorcher.
Met Éireann has said there will be "good sunny spells" this weekend with temperatures set to hit 25 degrees.
Earlier in the week, the Irish forecaster confirmed that a "tropical airmass" was set to hit Ireland this week, bringing with it warm and dry weather and good sunshine.
The weather experts are predicting that high pressure is on the way this weekend as the Azores high builds across Ireland.
In their latest forecast, Met Éireann said that patchy drizzle will clear on Friday morning for a mainly dry day with sunny spells developing.
It said it will feel a tad fresher than recent days with temperatures generally ranging from 16 to 20 degrees in moderate winds.
Saturday, however, will be dry in most areas with some good sunny spells in Leinster and Munster, as temperatures will range from 18 to 23 degrees.
That said, it will be cloudier in Ulster and Connacht with a little drizzle in the former for a time.
Sunday will be warm and dry in Leinster, Munster and east Ulster with good sunny spells and temperatures in these parts ranging from 21 to 25 degrees.
It will be cooler and cloudier in west Connacht and west Ulster with some patchy rain or drizzle at times along the Atlantic coast and temperatures between 16 to 20 degrees.
Monday will also be largely dry with sunny spells, though it will be a cooler, fresher day with temperatures between 15 to 20 degrees.
Met Éireann's outlook for the week ahead says the weather will cool down and become more unsettled.
