We’ve had a taste of the sun this week and we want more!
It looks like our prayers have been answered, Ireland is set for a major heatwave from next week!
James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather, said May is shaping up to be a scorcher.
He said: “Despite a much fresher and slightly more unsettled outlook in the coming days, there is now agreement that high pressure will dominate for the remainder of May.
“This will allow many parts of the country to bask in super hot temperatures – with a number of heat surges around the mid month period and during the final third of the month.”
“All of this will deliver optimum conditions for heatwave after heatwave during the start of the meteorological summer, and several of these heat surges are likely to be of some major significance in terms of the maximum recorded temperatures.”
