Heatwave? Temperatures set to reach 28C across the country

Get the suncream out everyone, we look set to have a scorcher on our hands.  

Ireland will be getting some rays from the Europe-wide heatwave as temperatures will inch towards highs of 28C.

A Status Yellow heat warning has been issued by Met Éireann for Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork, Kerry, and Limerick.

If you want to avoid the heat, stay indoors between 1pm to 7pm tonight.

Met Eireann forecaster Dr. Clara Finkele said, ''It will reach those temperatures of 27, 28 in those counties along the west coast, generally we're looking at 22, 24, 25, 26 degrees nationwide, maybe a few degrees lower in the east coast.'' 

She continued, ''Early next week, the temperatures will return to more normal temperatures in high teens, low 20s, mainly 21, 22, degrees by midweek next week.”

Pride parade attendees will be in for a stunning day this Sunday with 25 degrees expected in some parts of the country.

Dr. Finkele. said, ''Saturday is still a warm day, 20 to 25 degrees but then the winds will turn westerly for Sunday and it will be actually quite breezy. And then, temperatures will return to 17 to 20 degrees.''

It might not be a fab as 2018's summer, but we'll happily take it.
