Brace yourselves: Tomorrow's going to be so hot there's a weather warning in place

For once it’s not about wind and rain.

Update 6.12 pm 

TEMPERATURES ARE GOING to get so high tomorrow that Met Éireann are putting a “high temperature warning” in place for Ireland.

The status yellow warning is in place from 10am tomorrow morning until 7pm in the evening with Met Éireann saying that many areas across the country will reach 28 degrees Celsius

This tops temperatures from today which were between 20 and 26 degrees across many parts.

Status yellow is the lowest level of Met Éireann’s three weather alert levels before orange and red.

Sunshine will also be widespread across the country but patchy sea-fog may affect the south and east coast through the day.

Just how is it going to be this week? Met Éireann’s Joanna Donnelly says she’s never seen the likes of it:

Also, if you had trouble sleeping with the heat last night you can expect something similar this evening. Met Éireann says that tonight will be ‘close and humid’ overnight with temperatures no lower than 12 to 15 degrees.

Also, if you’re a farmer, Met Éireann wants you to know that the humid weather means that conditions make the spread of potato blight more favourable.

Later this week we will see some rain, with temperatures dipping to around 20 degrees.
