"Great news weather wise this week."
A spell of good weather in Ireland is set to last "right through next weekend" with temperatures of up to 25 degrees, Met Éireann has confirmed.
Evelyn Cusack, head of forecasting at Met Éireann, told Newstalk on Monday that conditions are set to improve dramatically this week after weeks of miserable weather as highest temperatures are set to reach over 20 degrees throughout the week.
Cusack said that people can expect "great news weather wise this week".
She said: “It has been a bit dreary now for the last couple of weeks, but it’s very nice weather this week.
“It is overall going to be dry, warm and sunny, light winds.
"The highest temperatures actually will be in the west and south, but very pleasant everywhere.
"Temperatures ranging up as high as 25 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday."
Cusack also confirmed that the weather would last "right through next weekend".
She also urged people to wear suncream and be careful of water safety when out enjoying the sun this week.
According to the Met Éireann forecast, Tuesday is set to a warm, dry and sunny day, with any mist and fog clearing through the morning and highest temperatures of between 20 to 24 degrees.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will also be dry, warm and mostly sunny.
Temperatures will reach between 21 and 24 degrees most days and will soar to 25 degrees widely across the country on Wednesday.
On Thursday, the highest temperatures will be in the southwest, where it may reach 25 degrees.
On Friday, highest temperatures will once again reach 19 or 20 degrees.
Early indications suggest that the settled spell will continue into the weekend, with mostly dry weather, though there may be showers at times as highest temperatures stay above 20 degrees.
