The warm and sunny weather looks set to continue for the next two days at least.

And while there may be a few showers on Sunday and Monday, temperatures will remain in the 20s over the weekend.

Gerry Murphy from Met Eireann told Independent.ie that while the weather this week has been "very pleasant", it is not a heatwave.

"Strictly speaking it's not a heatwave. What we need for a heatwave is five consecutive days at 25 degrees or over but having said that it is still lovely pleasant weather."

Mr Murphy explained that Friday and Saturday will be warm and sunny with temperatures expected to be in the low 20s across the country.

On Sunday the mercury may go to 24 degrees but sun-worshippers can also expect some showers.

He added: "It stays warm on Monday, but maybe not quite as warm. There will be showers and more on Monday when they will be heavier. On Tuesday there will be sowers as well but still warm."

Further rain will be pushing in towards the end of next week but as is the tradition the conditions will be good as students begin to sit their Junior and Leaving Certificate exams.
