MET ÉIREANN HAS issued a Status Yellow warm weather warning for parts of the west and south of Ireland, with temperatures expected to reach over 27 degrees tomorrow. 

The warning covers Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick for Thursday. It will remain in place from 1pm to 7pm tomorrow. 

Met Éireann is warning that temperatures could reach over 27 degrees – making the western and southern counties significantly warmer than the rest of the country. 

Across Europe, countries from Sweden to Spain are experiencing an extreme heatwave that meteorologists are predicting could break June records. In some places, officials are warning that temperatures could reach over 40 degrees.

Ireland seems set to escape these extreme temperatures, with the latest warning from Met Éireann coming after days of unsettled weather across the country.

On Monday, Met Éireann issued a Status Yellow warning for thundery showers and heavy rain. 

Met Éireann regularly issue weather warnings to ensure that the public can protect themselves and make preparations in response to unusual or extreme weather.

Last year, Met Éireann issued a number of warnings as temperatures rocketed during the month of June. A Condition Red warning – the highest level warning – was issued last June in response to concerns about forest fires.
