Tomorrow, Tuesday will be mainly dry with sunny spells.

Met Éireann has stated that tonight conditions will remain "dry in most areas, with variable cloud cover" however, a 

"little patchy light rain or drizzle will occur".

Wednesday will be dry in most areas with maximum temperatures of 19 to 23 or 24 Celsius.

Winds will be mostly light to moderate, south to southeast.

The good weather is expected to stay as we move into the second half of the week. 

Thursday is expected to be "very warm and dry, with sunny intervals", with temperatures possibly reaching up to 25 Celsius.

The expected high temperatures have prompted animal welfare charity Dogs Trust to urge dog owners to be aware of the dangers of heatstroke.

Dogs Trust says that hotter weather can be dangerous for dogs.

They are asking dog owners, especially those with older, overweight or ‘flat-faced’ dogs to be extra vigilant and to look out for signs of heatstroke.

Symptoms include excessive panting, red gums and tongue, heavy salivation, vomiting or diarrhoea, lack of coordination or loss of consciousness.

The charity is also calling on owners not to leave dogs in hot cars saying it can be "fatal".

"Just a few minutes in a hot car can be fatal to your dog with temperatures inside rising from 22 to 33 degrees in just 10 minutes.

"Even if the car is parked in the shade and the windows are left down, it does very little to keep the car cool," they stated.
