Temperatures are tipped to hit 20 degrees tomorrow – and today they averaged somewhere between 16 and 19 degrees.

“Our models show that the temperatures will hit 20 degrees tomorrow,"  a Met Eireann forecaster told independent.ie.

“Rain will move into the North West later this evening, and this will affect the North West and Western regions tonight. It might get as far as the Midlands tomorrow but the rain won’t be heavy.”

“The midlands and the east will have prolonged spells of brightness,” the spokesperson said.

Such high temperatures are not usually associated with the Irish Autumn.

And there is more good news – such conditions are expected to continue into next week.

Met Eireann say that the mild conditions are a resulting from the airflow coming in from the mid-Atlantic.

However, the Irish winter is soon to make a return – with forecasters saying our October will more than likely come to a chilly end.

But for now, enjoy the extended Indian summer while it lasts.
