MET ÉIREANN HAS issued a ‘high temperature advisory’ with Ireland’s heatwave expected to continue for much of the coming week.

Temperatures in the high 20s are likely to remain a feature for the coming days.

The advisory is valid from midday today until midday on Friday 23 July.

Forecasters expect “maximum temperatures generally ranging 24 to 29 degrees but slightly less warm along the coast due to sea-breezes,” according to the Met Éireann website.

There is a small chance of a few localised heavy showers breaking out during the evening.

High to very high UV levels are expected today under clear skies and people are being urged to use sun protection if they plan to spend time outdoors this weekend and over the coming days.
