Dublin: 10°C Wednesday 25 May 2022

Mediterranean conditions to last up to weekend (but it will stay sunny after that too!)

There’ll be a bit of a drop off after tomorrow, but we’ll still be firmly in Irish “good summer” territory…

“UNBROKEN SUNSHINE” – IN a bizarre turn of events, it’s a phrase Ireland’s beginning to become familiar with, following a prolonged period of unusually warm weather. And, according to Met Éireann, there’ll be more of it about today.

Temperatures for much of the country will be in the mid- to high- twenties, but it will be a little cooler on the coasts due to onshore breezes and lingering fog.

It’s more of the same tomorrow too – with the east of the country experiencing the best of the sunshine. Met Éireann’s warning however that there’s also the risk of “the odd heavy shower breaking out” over parts of Ulster or Leinster.

Temperatures will fall back a little over the weekend, but they’ll still be above normal. By Monday we’ll be back in more typical Irish “good summer” territory, with the mercury registering figures in the high teens to low twenties. Rainfall amounts will remain small too.

People have certainly been making the most of the very un-Irish summer weather. Here’s a selection of some images from the last 24 hours…
