Weather: Northern Ireland heatwave to continue - but for how long?

Northern Ireland was basking in the sunshine on Monday as the sun firmly put its hat on - but the question on everyone's lips was, how long will it stay?

Beaches and parks were packed as those enjoying the sun basked in the glorious heat.

The hottest spot recorded was Killowen in Co Down which reached 26.5 degrees.

This was just shy of the hottest day of the year so far when Armagh reached 26.6 degrees on June 21.

The Met Office forecasts that Monday night will remain warm with a minimum temperature of 9 degrees.

Tuesday is set to be another dry, bright and very warm day with some sunny spells.

Some cloud will arrive later in the afternoon with a change of the odd isolated shower but the maximum temperature is expected to be 25 degrees.

However enjoy Tuesday as from Wednesday onwards there is the chance of thundery showers.

There will be sunshine and scattered showers on Thursday and Friday with the temperatures turning cooler.
