THERE IS GOOD news for those who’ve been enjoying the sun over the past few weeks: we’re set for another hot week with “little or no rain forecast” across the country.

However, that means that Met Éireann’s status yellow drought warning remains in place as this week gets underway with temperatures reaching as high as 27 degrees in some parts of the country today.

A separate status yellow warning kicks into effect at 11am today for most of the country – in Munster, Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Galway, Leitrim and Roscommon – due to the high temperatures.

The warmest weather today will be found in Munster and south Leinster, and the warm, dry weather will continue into tomorrow.

Wednesday is forecast to be largely similar, with the slight risk of one or two isolated shower.

Looking further ahead, the rest of the week will be largely similar with temperatures likely in the mid-to-low twenties throughout.

Met Éireann added in its forecast: “At the moment it looks like the early days of next week will continue warm, dry and mostly sunny.”

However, the drought conditions have contributed to a hosepipe ban introduced by Irish Water, which has urged customers to conserve water.
