Ah, you love to see it. Sunday is expected to be the hottest day of the year so far with temperatures set to hit the mid-20s in parts of the country.

Leinster, Munster and east Ulster will have the warmest weather, according to Met Éireann, where temperatures will reach between 22-26 degrees with sunny spells occurring. Meanwhile, western counties will be cooler with highs expected between 16-21 degrees.

The Met Éireann forecast for Sunday reads, "Sunday will be very warm and dry in Leinster, Munster and east Ulster with sunny spells and highest temperatures of 22 to 26 degrees and light to moderate southwest breezes. A bit cooler in western counties where it will be cloudier with highs of 16 to 21 degrees.

"Through the evening, showers will develop across Connacht and Ulster. On Sunday night, showery rain in the west and northwest will spread eastwards, becoming light and patchy. Cooler weather will follow. Lowest temperatures of 10 to 14 degrees."

After that, it will be a dry start to next week as Monday will feature some sunny spells and highs of 15 to 20 degrees (warmest in the southeast with light to moderate west to northwest breezes).

Tuesday will also start dry but rain will eventually develop in parts.
