LAST UPDATE | Sep 6th 2023, 12:21 PM

THE WARM WEATHER is due to stick around for a few days as a high temperature warning has been issued by Met Éireann. 

The Status Yellow high temperature warning has been issued for the whole country. It will kick in at 8am tomorrow and will remain valid until 8am on Saturday. 

Met Éireann has warned that it will be very warm and humid tomorrow and Friday. 

Daytime temperatures in excess of 27 degrees in many areas away from coasts are expected with nighttime temperatures not dropping below 15 degrees. 

The forecaster warned that these conditions may cause heat stress, uncomfortable sleeping conditions and a risk of water related incidents. 

Looking at today’s forecast, much of the country will have a dry day but a few showers will develop, mainly across the west. They may also may turn heavy and thundery.

Mist and fog may linger on some windward coasts throughout the day, Met Éireann said.

Temperatures are also set to reach 27C in the North, with parts of Britain facing a heatwave.

Areas in West Yorkshire, Cornwall, Devon and Wales hit heatwave criteria on Tuesday, the Met Office said, and more areas are expected to be added to the list as the week goes on.

It is the first time since June as temperatures rise and the hottest day of the year is expected this week.

And while the hottest temperature recorded on Tuesday was 30.7C and did not pass June’s top reading of 32.2C, a new record is likely on Wednesday or Thursday, the forecaster added.
