THE GOOD WEATHER continues today, with Friday is set to be the warmest day of the current spell.
Meanwhile, on Saturday temperatures will be a degree or so lower with showers, affecting the south of the country, while further north will hold onto sunny weather. On Sunday, more showery rain across southern areas while over the northern half of the country will again be sunny and still on the warm side.
A very warm day countrywide with values between 19 to 25C, with a chance of 26C in one or two spots, warmest in the midlands west and north, coolest along east and south coasts. Due to the very high temperatures and slightly unstable air over the south, shower clouds will build and move into Munster where one or two could be on the heavy side in the late afternoon and early evening. There is a slight risk of thunder in parts of Munster with Clare and south Galway at risk of a shower too. Elsewhere will be fine and dry with hazy sunshine at times. Winds will be easterly and light for the most part.
