Donegal is set to bask in hot sunny weather this Tuesday as temperatures soar to 26C highs.
Tuesday is set to be a dry day full of sunshine in the north west. Temperatures will heat up to 20-26C.
Donegal will be treated to a hot start to the week, with Met Eireann forecasting very warm and humid conditions.
There is a risk of thundery downpours on Tuesday night.
A forecaster said: “Tuesday will be another warm and mostly dry day. After a cloudy start, sunshine will develop quite widely as the day goes on. Top temperatures of 20 to 26 degrees. Light to moderate southeasterly breezes will be fresh and gusty near west and southwest coasts.
“Showers will spread from up from the southeast on Tuesday evening and night, bringing the threat of a few thundery downpours in the east and north. Meanwhile, outbreaks of rain will push in off the Atlantic to affect the southwest and west. Lowest temperatures will be around 14 to 17 degrees in mainly light to moderate southerly or southeasterly breezes.”
The weather is expected to become less warm and more unsettled as the rain returns from midweek onwards.
