The glorious sunshine and hot weather are set to last for at least another week in Ireland, with some forecasters predicting up to 10 days of a heatwave.
Ireland will have unseasonably hot temperatures of up to 30 degrees this week, with the potential to break records dating back 40 years to 1976, when mercury rose to 31.6C in Clare.
Parts of Donegal did experience rain this morning, but sunshine is on the way with top temperatures of 27 degrees in the North West.
Thursday and Friday will be the hottest days of the week with highs of 30C. The nights will be close and humid too, with temperatures of 12-16 forecast all this week.
Met Eireann’s Status Yellow high temperature warning remains in place until Friday, while forecasters have said little will change in the ten day outlook.
Warm summer days are in store until at least next Wednesday, but there is an increased chance of showers this weekend as the high pressure lifts.
Meanwhile, Irish Water is appealing to the public to conserve supplies. High demand for water combined with dry weather has led to a drop in reservoir levels and potential shortages.Tags:
