RTE weather forecaster Siobhan Ryan.

Between 15,000 and 20,000 thunder strikes were reported around Britain at the weekend which brought thunder and lightning across Munster and Leinster on Sunday morning.

RTE Weather forecaster, Siobhan Ryan, has said we are looking at a 'good news story' with warm, humid weather for the week ahead.

Over the next number of days there will be warm, humid continental air continuing to feed in above average temperatures for the next several days. However, this brings the ongoing risk of thunderstorm activity.

Temperatures will reach up to 24C  in places on Monday with showers breaking out throughout the afternoon and early evening in some places but mostly dry. 

Tuesday is set to be a sunnier day, dry everywhere, with temperatures reaching up to 25C. The warmest conditions will be in the midlands and west of the country.

Similar sunny day on Wednesday but with the threat of thundery cloud impacting southern coastlines.

Temperatures falling back a small bit but still remaining above average with sunshine but a greater threat of widespread showers on Thursday and Friday. 

The nights this week are set to be 'close' with temperatures staying up around 12C on Monday night.

Temperatures are around 4C above average.
