Temperatures are forecast to reach up to 22 degrees in the south and east, while tonight will stay dry and clear with highs of 11 degrees.

It will be a little cooler in the west and northwest, with highs of 19 degrees expected.

Monday will be another “warm, dry and sunny” day, according to Met Éireann, with temperatures of up to 23 degrees.

Tuesday will begin the same with highs of up to 25 degrees forecast, before heavy rain hits on Wednesday.
