The country's enjoying Mediterranean like conditions this weekend with temperatures soaring into the late twenties.

Yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far with Mount Dillon in Roscommon reached 27.1C.

Met Éireann said high pressure will result in dry, very warm and mostly sunny weather for the weekend and into the start of next week.

Today will be very warm and humid with temperatures of between 23C and 27C expected, possibly rising to 28C, according to the forecaster.

Both Gardai and the Road Safety Authority are urging people to drive carefully and the Coast Guard and RNLI are asking people to be careful near water.

Roger Sweeney from Water Safety Ireland says we need to be mindful.
