Ireland and the UK could be set to experience a blistering heatwave at the end of May according to forecasters who say a sudden surge of warm weather coming up from Spain could see temperatures rising to a staggering 29c.
According to The Star newspaper, the long range forecast has predicted that the Irish/British isles will bask in glorious sunshine from the end of May right into the middle of June.
The weather prediction which comes less than a week after forecasters predicted a warmer end to April with temperatures topping 21c, comes as the British Met Office have said the latest weather developments have suggested that both the UK and Ireland will experience well above average temperatures over the coming months ahead.
In a weekend that saw both countries experience the warmest day of the year, the British Met Office say warmer conditions are likely to be expected from the middle of next month, with temperatures expected to get even higher towards the end of May.
Meanwhile Outlook weather say they fully expect temperatures top 27c by the end of May as the warm air pushing northwards from the continent will linger over the Irish/British isles for a considerable period.
