Met Éireann issues high temperature advisory for Ireland

DUBLIN: A high temperature warning has been issued for Ireland as the country is set to experience a hot spell from Sunday into early next week. Met Éireann said daytime temperatures are expected to exceed 30C in some places and temperatures will remain uncomfortably warm overnight.

The weekend is expected to start with “spells of hazy sunshine,” with temperatures ranging between 20C to 25C. However, Saturday night temperatures are expected to be above 12 to 15 degrees.

Met Eireann said that high pressure coming in from the east will enable the very warm air that is over Spain and France to push up over Ireland. This will eventually lead to higher temperatures. The forecaster is likely to upgrade the advisory in the coming days.

Evelyn Cusack, head of forecasting at Met Éireann, said people should be aware of high UV rays and heed water safety advice. She also said that showers will return next Wednesday.
