Irish weather update – Met Eireann predicts 27c heat blast this week despite gloomy Monday start




Met Éireann is still forecasting a heat of 27C this week, despite heavy rains and no clear blue skies on Monday.

The Irish Weather Service has warned of showers beginning in the east of the country and spreading west, with heavy and blustery showers expected in some parts and the possibility of localized flooding, reports The Mirror.

Despite a wet start to the week, the national weather forecaster has pinpointed when a hot gust of 27C will hit.

They said Tuesday would be very warm and hot. Adding, “Scattered heavy showers or localised thunderstorms will break out during the day, most likely in the west or midlands. Top temperatures of 23 to 27 degrees, although less warm along coasts due to sea breezes. Some coastal mist or fog is likely at times,” reports The Mirror.

On Wednesday, little will change in terms of rising temperatures. Very warm to hot conditions are expected bringing temperatures up to 23-27 degrees for most but less warm on the coasts.

“Good spells of hazy sunshine although scattered heavy downpours or thunderstorms will develop in the afternoon and evening, most likely in the west and midlands. Light southeast breezes,” it said, reports The Mirror.

“Have a few days off this week? Head East or Southeast for the best of the weather and add Carlow to the list. Lots on offer here and the sun nearly always shines,” Alan O’Reilly of Carlow Weather said, reports The Mirror.
