IRISH PEOPLE ARE today advised to seek shade during midday hours and apply suncream as temperatures could rise up to 26 degrees Celsius. 

Today’s solar UV index is set at a high level across the country. This means people should look for shelter during midday hours to protect against the heat of the sun.

The Global Solar UV index is a scale developed by the World Health Organization which measures the UV radiation level from the sun, and gives an indication of potential for skin damage. 

Due to the country’s high level on this index today, it is advised to use suncream and cover up with protective clothing.

Today will be bright, warm and sunny across the country, Met Éireann said. Top temperatures will range from 22 to 26 degrees Celsius.

There will be light to moderate east to southeast breezes and it will be a bit cooler along east and southeast coasts.

Tonight will stay dry with clear spells and lowest temperatures of nine to 12 degrees.
