Summer has arrived – Temps could hit as high as 25c this week

Pack sunscreen as temperatures could reach 25°C over the coming week.
Yesterday was the hottest day of the year so far, with a high of 23.3C on Mount Dillon in County Roscommon.

Met-Éireann meteorologist Matthew Martin said temperatures could reach “24C or 25C in sheltered areas in the west and south-west” in the coming weeks.

“The coming week will see high pressure remain positioned near Ireland so the weather will remain mostly dry and settled. There will be plenty of sunshine throughout the week with daytime maximum temperatures generally ranging from 18C to 23C, a little cooler at times along eastern coasts as a moderate easterly breeze develops,” reports Independent.

Expect high levels of UV exposure during the week and risk of sunburn.

This is because temperatures in the Canary Islands will also reach 25°C this week.

Temperatures range from 14°C to 19°C, with the coldest conditions in northern Ulster.

Tonight is expected to remain dry and clear with temperatures between 4°C and 8°C with light or variable northeast winds, reports Independent.

Meanwhile, tomorrow will be warmer with highs of 17C to 22C, hottest in the West.

It will be generally dry and sunny, although sunshine is likely to be hazy at times.

It will be a few degrees cooler on the east coast with light to moderate easterly winds.

Monday night will be similar to the night before, remaining dry and clear with lows of 6-10C.

The rest of the week, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, will be warm, dry and mostly sunny with temperatures ranging between 18°C and 24°C, the warmest in western areas, reports Independent.

A light to moderate easterly wind is expected to keep things slightly cooler on the east coasts, with highs between 15°C and 17°C.

Nights remain dry and clear throughout the week with overnight temperatures ranging from 7°C to 12°C.
