Temperatures to hit 24 degrees today with even better conditions expected tomorrow

Bring it on!

Ok, so who pleaded with their boss/teacher/lecturer to get the next few days off? Anyone take annual leave so that they can greet this mysterious stranger about to appear in the sky? I believe it's called the sun.

Granted, that type of behaviour might appear to somewhat strange, but given the fact that parts of the country have recently endured weather warnings and miserable conditions where it was absolutely lashing, we're not going to be too quick to judge anyone.

Oh yes, it's time to break out the fans because the next few days are expected to be extremely good on the weather front with the mercury set to rise.

In terms of today's forecast, Met Éireann has some very good news because it's set to be a dry, warm and sunny day.

Temperatures will reach 20 to 24 degrees in parts of Ireland, but it's expected to be a few degrees cooler along northern and eastern coasts.

As for this evening, tonight will be dry with clear spells throughout. However, there's a risk that the odd shower will develop in the southwest.

On Thursday, we're predicting that the price of ice cream is going to increase in your local store by about 200% because top temperatures will reach between 22 to 27 degrees.

Just like today, Thursday will be dry and sunny with the risk of isolated heavy or possibly thundery showers in the southwest.

The mercury is expected to hit those levels again on Friday with highs of 27 degrees forecast.

Sadly, the eastern part of the country will see an increase in clouds as they drift over from the west with patchy rain at first but later that day, there's the risk of heavy thundery showers breaking out too.

As for Friday night, it's set to be mild and humid with cloud and scattered showers gradually spreading eastwards.

All in all, prepare to be sweltering.
