IT may have taken its time in coming, but it looks like the summer weather could be sticking around – at least for the next week.

After one of the wettest Mays on record last month, June looks set to bring a more prolonged spell of good weather.

Tomorrow looks set to be the warmest day of the good spell so far, with temperatures expected to top 21C.

However there is a possibility of some scattered showers in Munster and South Leinster in the late afternoon.

Friday should see temperatures again break the 20C mark, however once again there is the risk of showers in coastal parts of the south and southwest.

The weekend will be slightly more mixed weather-wise, however most areas should remain dry with warm sunny spells.

Saturday will be the better day of the weekend, there will be some scattered showers on Sunday.

High pressure will move back in over the country on Monday.

Monday would start out a little cool, however Tuesday and Wednesday will see temperatures soar back into the 20s once again.
