IRELAND IS NOT experiencing the scalding temperatures mainland Europe is dealing with, but we’re still getting the nicest weather of the summer so far. 

Yesterday, Met Éireann recorded the warmest temperature of the year when the mercury reached 28.4 degrees in Shannon Airport. 

Today’s temperatures aren’t predicted to be as high but could sneak up there in places.

Forecasters are predicting a warm and humid day with temperatures of 22 to 27 degrees generally but a few degrees cooler in southern coastal areas. 

The UV index remains very high countrywide but there are currently no weather warnings in place.

Tomorrow is predicted to be more mixed with some cloud and sunny spells but temperatures will still remain warm, ranging between 20 to 26 degrees.

Dublin and other eastern areas will be at risk of some heavy showers and thundery downpours that will clear by evening time. 

On Sunday, temperatures will cool and will top out at between 17 to 20 degrees. It’s predicted to be a bright and breezy day with only a few passing showers.
