According to Met Eireann, it's going to be a fantastic weekend on the weather front and that weather will last into next week.

According to the national forecaster, Saturday, will be another dry, fair weather day. High cloud could make the sunshine a little hazy at times in the north and east, but mainly fine and sunny conditions will prevail. Highest temperatures of 17 to 23 degrees, coolest at coastal regions in sea breezes.

More of the same is on the way for Sunday with the midlands and the south set to see the very best of the weather with temperatures in the mid to high 20s. Grass Pollen Index and UV Index will both be high according to Met Eireann.

High pressure is forecast to stay over Ireland for next week as well. There will be sunshine each day and it will stay dry everywhere

. It will become very warm by day with afternoon temperatures in the mid to high twenties. Sea breezes will make it a bit less warm near coasts and perhaps some sea fog may affect coasts later in the week. 

The nights will initially be cool with lowest temperatures on Saturday night of 6 to 10 degrees, but after that nights will become close with temperatures not falling much below 15 degrees from Monday night onwards.
