Met Eireann identifies weekend hotspots as mercury to hit 30C

As the hottest day of the year is expected, Met Éireann meteorologist Aoife Kealy revealed the areas that will see the highest temperatures of up to 30C this weekend:


Hotspots: Longford, Westmeath, Offaly and Laois will experience temperatures between 21C and 26C

Elsewhere: Very mild across the country with temperatures in the low twenties.

black cloud? The south of the country will be slightly cooler due to a light southerly breeze, with some possible isolated showers.


Hotspots: The Midlands will continue to experience the highest temperatures of up to 28C, this will also be seen in Clare, Limerick and Tipperary.

Croker Cooker: Temperatures of around 27C are expected at the throw-in for the All Ireland Senior Hurling Final at Croke Park

Elsewhere: Ulster and Connacht can expect temperatures in the mid 20’s but this will not reach into the high 20’s.

black cloud? The south of the country will remain slightly cooler as a southerly breeze persists, but will be dry, with hazy sunshine throughout the day.


Hotspots: If Ireland is set to hit temperatures of 30C, it will most likely happen in the Midlands on Monday

Elsewhere: North Munster and parts of Leinster will also experience temperatures in the high 20s where Ulster and Connacht will remain in the mid 20s.

black cloud? Not really! All counties are expected to experience sunshine and warm temperatures on Monday, with coastal areas expected to be slightly cooler but still warm.

Ms Kelly said: “The Midlands will be the warmest for the most part, that’s where we’ll see the highest temperatures over the next few days, as will North Munster and parts of Leinster.

“The further you get to land, the warmer it gets.

“The hottest weather is stretching across the country’s central Ban, particularly on Monday the Midlands and parts of South Leinster will really see those high temperatures.”

“If we’re going to get 30 degrees that would be mainly the Midlands and Leinster and a bit of North Munster, so possibly parts of Clare, Limerick and Tipperary.

It will still be warm near the coast but will be slightly cooler as we will experience a light coastal breeze.

“As you’d expect, it would be a bit cooler closer to shore, the edge is just taken by the heat there.”

The north and west, while not as warm, will also experience warm temperatures around the mid-twenties.

“Usually the north and west get stuck with the restriction, but in fact Monday through Tuesday the winds are from the south.

“This means the coolest temperatures will be along the south coast, with Connacht and Ulster likely to see temperatures in the mid to high 20s on Monday and Sunday anyway.”

Ms Kealy said the light to moderate winds will start in the south, starting in Cork and making their way across the country.

Although the Midlands is expected to be the warmest counties across the country, Ms Kealy said high temperatures will be seen everywhere.

“The high temperatures are really widespread, it’s going to feel very hot across the country.”

She explained that Sunday and Monday will be similar but on Tuesday we will see a change starting in the south of the country.

Leinster counties are expected to experience the last of the high temperatures and sunshine on Tuesday before the good weather spell ends.

“Tuesday will be a bit different, on Tuesday there will be some heavy showers coming in from the south so arriving around Tuesday evening and those heavy showers could be quite thundery.

“They will also moderate the temperatures so Tuesday we will still see a fairly warm day but we will see the temperatures drop a bit.

“The highest temperatures will be in the eastern half of the country on Tuesday, and by Wednesday temperatures across the country will have returned to normal.” Met Eireann identifies weekend hotspots as mercury to hit 30C
