Ireland will get one last blast of summer sunshine this week, as warm weather returns after a few dreary weeks.
Temperatures will generally be higher than 20 degrees over the next few days.
Following an often wet and overcast August, this week will be dry, warm and sunny with light winds.
Evelyn Cusack, head of forecasting at Met Éireann, told Newstalk Breakfast it’s some great news weather-wise for the final week of the school holidays.
She said: “It has been a bit dreary now for the last couple of weeks, but it’s very nice weather this week.
“It is overall going to be dry, warm and sunny with light winds.
"The highest temperatures will be in the west and south, but very pleasant everywhere.”
Evelyn said temperatures will surpass 20 degrees in many areas, and reach as high as 25 degrees in some areas on Wednesday and Thursday.
She said the good weather is likely to continue into next week.
However, she encouraged people to wear sunscreen and be very conscious of water safety if out and about over the next few days.
