The National Forecaster said that early indications suggest that warm and mostly dry conditions will continue for most of next week, with the best of the sunshine in the midlands, east and south.
It has also extended its Status Yellow drought warning for dry and warm weather until Wednesday, July 11.
There is a small chance of some scattered showers from midweek but temperatures will still be in the mid to high 20s, but a few degrees lower in coastal areas in sea breezes.
