Tuesday will be another very warm day with plenty of sunshine throughout the country. Conditions are expected to stay dry for most of the day though there is a chance of some heavy or thundery showers developing in the evening.

Temperatures are also expected to soar to between 24 and 29 degrees generally, again reaching higher locally and staying a few degrees less warm along coasts.

It will stay very warm or hot for much of the coming week as well with a good deal of sunshine as high pressure continues to influence the weather.

However, things may take a turn to slightly more unsettled conditions from this weekend.

Wednesday will also be a hot and dry day with widespread sunshine and scattered patches of cloud. Temperatures will once again reach 25 to 29 degrees generally but could be higher locally again.

Thursday is set to be another very warm and dry day with good spells of sunshine, though it will be a little hazier than previous days. Highest temperatures will hit 24 to 28 degrees.

Friday will also be a generally dry day over the northern half of the country with spells of warm sunshine.

However, scattered showers will develop over the southern half of the country through the day, with the potential for some thundery downpours.

The weather will also be slightly less warm than previous days with temperatures reaching 22 to 26 degrees.

There is also some uncertainty in the forecast for the weekend, however, current indications suggest that it will turn more showery.

It will be less warm than this week according to the weather experts, though temperatures will still reach the low to mid-twenties in many areas.
