Grab your bikini and BBQ, it's going to hit 25C today

Highest temperatures of 19C on south and west coasts, but 20 to 25C expected elsewhere. Whoop!

ALLELUIA! OUR PRAYERS have been answered! After what we can only be described as mediocre weather over the last week, Met Éireann are reporting this morning that temperatures could reach up to 25C today in some parts of the country today.

After a “a rather cloudy” morning with a little drizzle on northern coasts at first, “sunnier skies over the south will become more widespread as the day goes on,” says Met Éireann.

Highest temperatures of 16 to 19 degrees Celsius on south and west coasts, but temperatures are set to reach between 20 to 25 degrees Celsius elsewhere – warmest in Leinster.

Let us know what you’ll be doing in the good weather in the comments section below. We definitely feel like doing a bit of this later:
