Meteorologist Aoife Kealy says we'll likely see thermometers reach the high twenties.
"Essentially, what's happening is the temperatures as we move through the coming week are going to increase day on day."
"By the end of next week - we're looking at temperatures getting up into the high twenties in places."
"Uncomfortably warm nights as well, with temperatures not really falling below the mid teens."
