Temperatures in Offaly and the surrounding areas are likely to remain in the mid-20s for the rest of the week.
According to Met Eireann forecaster John Eagleton the forecast is the same countrywide, with balmy temperatures being enjoyed from coast to coast.
The story of sizzling temperatures could change come Saturday, however it’s expected Ireland will remain rain free even then.
Speaking to the Offaly Independent Mr Eagleton said the gloriously warm, dry and sunny weather will continue until at least Friday.
On Saturday he said there is a possibility that a weak weather front coming in from the Atlantic could cross Ireland and lower temperatures.
Though it’s too early to say for sure, he said that even if the weather front does hit Ireland it’s likely the weather will remain dry.
Currently temperatures in the region of 23 degrees Celsius to 28 degrees Celsius are being recorded during the day, while temperatures drop only to about 14 degrees Celsius at night.
Should the Atlantic front impact Ireland at the weekend it’s likely those temperatures could drop back to 19 or 20 degrees, before beginning to climb back up again on Sunday.
While the weather is tempting everyone outdoors, sun protection is recommended. Those who suffer from hayfever should also take note that grass pollen counts are very high.
