WATCH: Weather forecast for the week ahead and the weekend signals summer sun

Met Éireann's official weather forecasting partner says the weather for the first week of June looks more stable than the extreme climatic lurches experienced in June.

The seven-day forecast from the Met Office in the UK is predicting a fine week of summer weather for most. It is similar to the Met Éireann forecast.

The Met Office says the record-breaking heat over continental Europe that touched Ireland and Britain for a short time, has been brushed aside.

Their forecast says a high-pressure front in the Atlantic says there will be no return of the cool unsettled weather experienced through June.

There is uncertainty for the weekend of July 8/9 because a cool front is developing to the north of Britain and Ireland while a humid warm front is developing to the south of the islands. it expects fine and sunny spells for most with the possibility of warmer weather in the southern parts. 

The prediction is similar to what Met Éireann is forecasting in its latest seven-day tweeted weather charts. MORE DETAILS BELOW TWEET.

Met Éireann's forecast for the coming days issued on its website at 9.01am on July 2.
