However, in other parts of the country it will be cooler and fresher elsewhere with highs of 16 to 22 degrees.

There is also a chance of an isolated thundery burst in some parts of the country.

Meanwhile, Monday was one of the single hottest days in Ireland's history, as Phoenix Park provisionally reached a stunning 33.0 degrees Celsius.

The sweltering conditions represent the joint second-highest recorded temperature in Irish history, the highest temperature of the 21st century so far in Ireland, and the hottest day of all time in Dublin.
