Temperatures are expected to hit up to 20 degrees in parts this weekend. However, Ireland is set for some story weather next week.

Hurricane Ophelia is currently churning the waters of the Atlantic. By the time it reaches Europe, it is expected to be downgraded to a tropical storm - which is set to hit Ireland on Monday. 

Met Eireann has issued a nationwide yellow weather warning. The alert is valid until 6am on Tuesday morning. 

The forecaster says:

"A combination of a vigorous Atlantic weather system and the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia will pass close to Ireland on Monday, and has the potential to be a high-impact event in parts of the country. There is a lot of uncertainty as to the exact evolution and movement of this weather system during the coming four days, but storm-force winds, outbreaks of heavy rain, and very high seas are threatened. Met Eireann will maintain a close watch on the evolution and issue further advisories and warnings as these are warranted."
