High temperature weather warning issued for entire country

Ireland will see daytime temperatures “in excess of 27 degrees” in many areas.

Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow high temperature weather warning for the entire Republic of Ireland.

Valid from 8am on Thursday until 8am on Saturday, the alert states that the country will see “very warm and humid weather” on Thursday and Friday.

This is as daytime temperatures will reach “in excess of 27 degrees” in many areas away from coasts.

The Irish meteorological service lists the potential impacts of the high temperatures as “heat stress, uncomfortable sleeping conditions and risk of water-related incidents”.

Here’s what Met Éireann have to say about the weather over the next few days in its national forecast.
