Scorching temperatures are set to continue into Bank Holiday weekend
Ireland will be hotter than some parts of Spain this week.
Temperatures are set to reach as high as 25 degrees in Ireland this week and into the Bank Holiday weekend.
The hottest days this week are expected to be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday with temperatures reaching the mid-20s.
The east of the country will be the coolest with temperatures staying in the mid-to-late teens.
If you're in the midlands or the west of Ireland, you're in for a treat because those areas will be the warmest.
According to Met Éireann, today will be the mildest day of the week, reaching between 12 and 22 degrees.
Luckily, this dry and sunny weather will continue into the June Bank Holiday weekend where we'll experience temperatures of up to 25 degrees.
Dry, warm and sunny conditions expected for the week ahead☀️?

Met Éireann's Conall Ruth told the Irish Independent that the temperatures we are seeing this week "are a few degrees above average for this time of year".
He said: "There's no sign of rain during the working week. And in all likelihood, it looks like it will be dry into the long weekend.
Overnight temperatures are expected to be between 7 and 12 degrees Celsius all week and into the weekend.
However, it's not all good news. The Department of Agriculture also issued an Orange Forest Fire Warning "arising from weather patterns and expected level of risk." The warning is in place until midday, Tuesday, June 6.
When you're enjoying the beautiful weather this week, make sure to put on plenty of sun cream.
Don't fall into the trap of "it's only the Irish sun". No - the sun is the sun.
It will damage your skin no matter where in the world you are but thankfully, we can take steps to protect ourselves.
Add suncream to your morning skincare routine and top it up during the day. Make sure to bring some SPF with you when you're on the go too.
