Warm weather set to last into the bank holiday weekend

It looks like Summer could finally be here as the current warm spell is expected to persist into next weekend, possibly with even higher temperatures.

Temperatures are expected to climb into the 20’s today and they are expected to continue rising during the weekend, and Met Eireann believe that the bank holiday weekend could be a scorcher.


With the warm weather seeing people flocking to beaches and waterways, Irish Water Safety have reminded people to exercise caution near water.

A spokesperson said that ” If  people ensure they’re in a spot where they can wade in and swim within their depth, they’re not likely to get into trouble.”

Wicklow Weather have also issued a sun advisory for today and tomorrow with the UV index at a high level.

They have advised people to use appropriate skin and eye protection while in direct sunshine.

Here is an outlook from Met Eireann for the coming days.


OUTLOOK: Relatively warm conditions persisting through the week, with best values across midland and western areas. Whilst it will hold mostly dry with just light northeast breezes, not completely settled, as there is the threat of some showery rain.

TOMORROW NIGHT: Staying dry overnight under broken cloud, but with some mist and fog patches. Lowest temperatures of 7 to 10 degrees Celsius, in light to moderate northwest breezes.

WEDNESDAY: Rather warm with spells of sunshine, hazy at times in the east. Overall dry with moderate northeast breezes. Highest temperatures will range 19 to 22 degrees Celsius, but a few degrees lower along north and east coasts due to onshore breezes.

THURSDAY: A duller day, especially in the very east of Leinster, where there is the likelihood of occasional rain or drizzle. Brighter further west with some nice sunny spells. Temperatures a little lower than recent days but still above normal for most areas. Highest temperatures will range 14 to 20 degrees Celsius (all the while best in the west); coolest along the east coast, with moderate to fresh northeast winds feeding in off the Irish Sea.

FRIDAY: A warmer and brighter day with highest temperatures of 16 to 22 degrees Celsius. Good spells of sunshine are expected and it should hold fully dry with just light northeast breezes. Local sea breezes will develop along western coasts through the day.

Current indications suggest the warm spell will persist into next weekend, possibly with even higher temperatures.
