Met Eireann forecast: Temperatures will rise in Ireland this weekend as Europe experiences a heatwave

Warm weather is set to continue as temperatures are set to hit as high as 22C in parts of the country today.

The best sunshine will be in Leinster and Munster, while scattered showers will hit Connacht and Ulster.

There will be a mix of cloud and sunny spells into the evening, with the south-east of the country experiencing some light showers later in the evening.

Temperatures remain high, ranging between 16°C and 22°C, with a light to moderate west to north-west breeze.

Tonight we will see scattered showers in Ulster and Connacht but the rest of the country will be dry with periods of clear spells.

The lowest temperatures are between 8°C and 12°C with a light westerly or variable breeze.

It will remain sunny tomorrow as well, but isolated showers will remain in the north of the country.

It will become a little cloudier in the afternoon and evening as the showers spread further south.

High temperatures will continue into tomorrow with highs of 15C to 22C, warmest in the south-east of the country, with a light to moderate west to north-west wind.

Later in the week sunny spells and scattered showers will persist but we’ll see a warm, sunny weekend with temperatures reaching 25C on Saturday and Sunday.

While we can expect good weather, it doesn’t compare to the sweltering heat seen across Europe this week.

Droughts and wildfires have hit Spain and Portugal and are expected to spread to France and Britain this week.

Temperatures will peak in France and Spain on Thursday, prompting the cancellation of fireworks for France’s Bastille Day.

Spain has been hit by temperatures in the low 40s this week, with Galicia in the northern region on alert as it braces for 42C heat.

Over the next two days, Spain can expect temperatures to rise even further, peaking as high as 47C in the northeast of the country on Thursday.

According to the national meteorological institute IPMA, Portugal is at high risk of forest fires.

IPMA expects temperatures to reach highs of 47C later this week.

Tourism has been hit by the temperatures as the popular town of Sintra near Lisbon has been forced to close popular tourist destinations by government order.

The UK is also being hit by a heatwave, with the Met Office saying there’s a 30 per cent chance the UK will hit 40C this weekend.

This would mean Britain is experiencing a Stage Four heatwave for the first time ever. Met Eireann forecast: Temperatures will rise in Ireland this weekend as Europe experiences a heatwave
