THE FINE STRETCH of weather is to continue into next week as forecasters predict that temperatures will remain in the mid 20s until Thursday.

According to Met Éireann, it will be warm and sunny for the whole day with highest temperatures of between 22 and 26 degrees with Leinster and Munster expected to get the best of it.

It’s a similar story for Monday through Wednesday but temperatures could reach as high as 27 degrees in the Munster region.

The northeast wind will be light, though, and most of the country will continue dry.

A Met Éireann forecaster said: “It’ll be cloudier in the north with the possibility of a passing shower, but there’ll be good sunshine for much of the country. Tuesday night will be dry, and mild and humid too with lowest temperatures overnight between 12 and 15 degrees.

Wednesday will be warmest in the northwest of the country as winds veer further to the southeast during the course of the day. Temperatures up to 26 degrees at best in the afternoon there. Country-wide temperatures will be between 20 and 24 degrees. There’ll be good sunny spells with the risk of a passing shower in the morning. Mostly dry overnight.
