Ireland is set to experience an Indian summer as temperatures will rocket to highs of 26 degrees later this week.

Tomorrow will be warm and dry across much of the country with temperatures ranging from 20 to 24 degrees.

While rain or drizzle may linger in Ulster, counties further south will experience decent spells of sunshine which will become widespread by evening.

Met Eireann predicts that Tuesday will be “dry and very warm” as long spells of sunshine develop towards the afternoon.

It will be warmer than usual for this time of year as temperatures will soar to between 22 to 26 degrees, with some breezes coming from the east.

Tuesday night will be mostly dry too, feeling humid at 15 to 16 degrees, but some showers are likely to develop in Munster.

From Wednesday, however, weather conditions will change as rain is on the cards.

While there will be a fair amount of dry weather, the day will see scattered showers which will become heavier and more widespread into Wednesday evening, continuing overnight.

The heavy rain will continue overnight, although it will still feel fairly warm at 15 to 16 degrees.

Thursday will be a “showery day with widespread heavy showers and a possibility of thunderstorms and some spot flooding” but the rain should die out by the evening, according to Met Éireann.

Temperatures, although still quite warm, will drop to between 19 to 21 degrees on Thursday before dropping again on Friday, where highs will range from 17 to 20 degrees.

Light showers are to be expected on Friday, as well as sunny spells, which should continue through to the weekend as current indications suggest that it will be dry with some scattered rain and mild temperatures in the mid to high teens.
