LEINSTER WEATHER: Heat wave ahead as Met Eireann forecast big rise temperatures
Laois and all of Leinster are in for another blast of summer this week with another heat wave on the way bringing "uncomfortably warm nights".
Met Eireann is forecasting that temperatures will get as high as 29 degrees on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
High pressure will continue to bring settled, mainly dry and sunny conditions. Very warm or hot as well through the rest of the week and weekend with temperatures widely in the mid to high twenties. It will be uncomfortably warm during the nights too.
But Met Eireann adds that current indications suggest that it will turn more unsettled early next week with temperatures falling back closer to average for the time of year.
