No rain today, thanks: Weather set to hit 24 degrees in mini-heatwave

UMBRELLA? LEAVE IT at home. Warm coat? Throw it under the stairs. Raincoat? Forget about it.

That’s right: it’s taken a long, long time to get here, but it seems that we’re currently in the middle of something of a mini-heatwave.

Here’s a look at the rainfall radar for Ireland today as of 8am:

See that? Not a drop of rain in sight.

Instead, Met Éireann has promised a dry and warm day, and has even said the magic words: Good Spells of Sunshine in Most Areas. Hurrah!

Temperatures are going to hit up to 24 degrees in parts of the country with the warm spell lasting into the evening.

And not to overdo the good news or anything, but what’s Wednesday going to be like? Over to Met Éireann again:

Wednesday will be warm again or even very warm.

That’s what we like to hear. Ireland only gets between 1,100 and 1,600 hours of sunshine a year, according to Met Éireann, so make the most of this.

Major task for the day: to find one of these guys.
