Alan O'Reilly from Carlow Weather says the South East will see the best of the conditions over the next two days.

"Temperatures possibly getting up to as high as 24 degrees tomorrow for a time on Friday.

"But really, apart from the South East, it will be much cooler in the north west, with temperatures struggling to get above 19 or 19 degrees."
