After a 25C blazing Good Friday, temperatures will continue climbing, hitting 26C on Saturday, 27C on Bank Holiday Monday and 28C on Tuesday, the Met Office said.

Cork will be as warm as the Costa Del Sol, with hot, dry weather until at least Monday. Temperatures are expected into the mid 50s. Winds will be light this morning, and then out of the South to 10mph this afternoon. Lowest temperatures of 6 to 9 degrees in near calm conditions.

Will the warm weather continue? .

Friday Night: Cloudy, some spotty drizzle or a shower or two.

Monday: Sunny, with a high near 80. This is due to an uncertainty in the positioning of a slow moving frontal system which is battling against the high pressure to the east.

Apple And Qualcomm End Global Court Battle And Are Best Buds Again
Apple licensed Qualcomm's technology for the iPhone early on, helping the phone maker break into the wireless industry. Now that the dust has settled, Apple can start testing a 5G-enabled iPhone with Qualcomm's latest and faster modems.

Met Office forecaster Simon Partridge said:"Easter Sunday and Monday could well break their temperature records, with lovely sunny conditions for most".

The highest temperature recorded over an Easter weekend has been reached four times, with Heathrow (London), Mildenhall (Suffolk) and Wisley (Surrey) recording 27.8 Celsius in 1949 and once again in Wisley in 2011. "Long spells of warm hazy spring sunshine across much of Leinster and Munster". A warm front moved to the north overnight, and now we are in more tropical air.

Met Eireann says that latest indications suggest breezier generally on Monday especially on the west coast.

I want to set some expectations about the amount of rain, however, because I do think that a lot of the heaviest will stay west of Worcester through Saturday midday.

Make sure to hang on to your umbrellas for the next few days!
