Met Éireann predict that today's weather will be just as hot as the weekend

It was a glorious weekend.

We might as well have had four days of summer this weekend as the sun covered the country down on us from start to finish.

We completely and utterly lapped it up and all we wanted to do was drink pints outside... and we did.

Well, you might want to make some plans for this evening because the sun isn't going anywhere.

Temperatures are to reach up to 21 degrees today, so you might as well grab your mates and head outside to soak up that sun.

Met Éireann said: "Mostly cloudy and misty at first with some showers. Brightening up later this morning and for the afternoon with any showers becoming confined to the Northwest. Hazy sunshine developing and becoming warm with top temperatures of 17 to 21 degrees in moderate East to Southeast or variable breezes."

And for tonight: "Tonight will be mild, humid and misty with further showers moving up over the country from the southeast. Minimum of 8 to 11 degrees in mainly moderate east to southeast breezes, becoming fresher along the Northeast coast."

Tomorrow is going to take a turn though, with thundery showers on the way.

"Tomorrow will bring bands of heavy/thundery showers or rain spreading up from the South. Good dry bright periods likely until later in the North.

"Moderate or fresh Southeast or Southerly breezes. Highest temperatures ranging from the high teens in the Midlands and North to 14 or 15 degrees in the South but turning cooler everywhere later."
