Stock up on the sunscreen, as there are some very warm and sunny days ahead.

Temperatures of 23 to 24 degrees are expected in parts of the country every day from now to Friday.

Apart from a few isolated showers, most of the country can expect warm, dry and bright weather throughout the week.

However, forecasters are warning the weather's going to turn more unsettled as we head into the weekend - with heavy showers likely.

Alan O’Reilly of Carlow Weather spoke to Breakfast Briefing to explain the weather that lies ahead.

He said: “[There are] a few lovely, fine days ahead. It’s going to get up to 20-23 degrees today - the best of that will be will be away from the north-west and west, where it will be cloudier and cooler.

“It will get a little bit warmer even tomorrow, up to 24 degrees - again with good sunny spells, and the winds will be much lighter. Thursday it'll be back up to 24 degrees, with a small chance of a couple of showers. On Friday, it should hold at 24 degrees as well, with a few showers here and there.”

Despite those possible showers, this week will offer up a few "nice, warm sunny days" before the weather turns unsettled heading into the weekend.

Alan explained: “It does look like some rain is going to push up from the south-west on late Friday into Saturday.

"It does, unfortunately, look like there’s going to be some heavy showers on Saturday, and a risk of heavy showers again on Sunday.”

Temperatures will still be in the 19-20 degrees region, but organising outdoor events may be tricky due to that risk of heavy showers.

With temperatures remaining high, many people may be finding it difficult to sleep at night - although Alan noted we should put the warm weather here into context.

He said: “Temperature records were broken again in Canada yesterday, with a new all-time record high of 47.9 degrees.

"If we think it’s warm here, just spare a thought for those living in western Canada.”
