Hot weather set to continue through next week as Met Eireann issues High Temperature Advisory

Met Éireann has issued a High Temperature Advisory due to the hot weather that is set to bake Ireland for at least the rest of the weeek.

Met Éireann says that it will continue very warm until Friday, with day time temperature into the high twenties and very humid at night with temperature staying in the mid to high teens. The Advisory is in place from Sunday until Friday.

High pressure will bring predominantly dry, very warm and mostly sunny weather for much of next week. Remaining very warm and humid at night also.

The forecasters farming section says that over the coming week, daytime maxima will generally be in the mid to high twenties initially, turning cooler towards the weekend but still ranging in the low twenties.

The Met Éireann farming forecasters add that sunshine amounts over much of the week ahead will be above average though, towards next weekend, it will become cloudier.

NATIONAL FORECAST issued at 11.17am on Sunday, July 18.

SUNDAY: Hot and sunny across most of the country. However, in coastal areas of north Ulster it will be somewhat cloudier with patches of coastal mist at times. Maximum temperatures generally ranging 25 to 29 or 30 degrees, but slightly less warm along coasts due to a sea-breeze. There is a small chance of a few localised heavy showers breaking out later this afternoon or evening.

Staying quite warm overnight with largely clear skies, but a few patches of mist or low cloud will form around dawn. Lowest overnight temperatures generally 14 to 16 degrees but a little cooler in north Ulster with a mostly light northeasterly breeze. MORE BELOW SATELLITE IMAGE TAKEN OVER IRELAND ON SUNDAY.
