"Lovely, warm and sunny" weather is expected across Ireland this weekend, as temperatures soar to the mid to high 20s.

After a few warm and humid days this week, temperatures are forecast to rise even further on Saturday and Sunday.

Met Éireann says people across the country can expect temperatures of 23 to 26 degrees, with highs of 27 degrees in some local areas.

There'll be cooler conditions near coasts due to sea breezes, but most people can expect some very good sunshine.

Similar weather is expected on Sunday, with highs of 23 to 27 degrees - with the hot weather also expected to continue into early next week.

Evelyn Cusack, head of forecasting at Met Éireann, spoke to Newstalk Breakfast about what weather people can expect over the next few days.

She said: “It’s going to be a lovely, warm, sunny weekend right across the country - temperatures in the mid to high 20s.

“It’s a very humid air mass, producing some drizzle, mist and sea fog in some areas… but for most of the country, it will be dry, warm and sunny.”

However, she cautioned that the UV index will be high - meaning people will get sunburn very easily when outside.

She noted: “Keep in the shade around the midday hours.”

Sea temperatures are also getting “quite decent” at the moment, at up to 16 and 17 degrees.

However, Evelyn urged all swimmers to pay attention to water safety and be very careful when in the sea.
