Met Eireann issues weather advisory ahead of 'hot spell'

Hot weather set to continue through next week as Met Eireann issues High Temperature Advisory

MET Eireann has issued a weather advisory this Sunday afternoon for the week ahead.

It reads: "Ireland will experience a hot spell developing from Wednesday and continuing through the rest of the week and the weekend. Daytime temperatures will widely reach the mid to high twenties. Remaining uncomfortably warm overnight too." 

The advisory is valid from this Sunday to Monday, August 15.

The forecaster said the impacts are heat stress, especially for the more vulnerable of the population; high solar UV index and risk of water related incidents

National Outlook
