We are very familiar with Met Eireann's Status Yellow warning but we don't think we've ever seen one like this before.

The national forecaster has issued a warning because temperatures tomorrow are going to be so high.

The warning simply says that the mercury will hit 27 degrees in various parts of the country tomorrow, between 10am and 8pm.

Temperatures sizzled to highs of nearly 26C in Dublin's Phoenix Park yesterday, while the rest of the country enjoyed temperatures of between 21C and 25C.

However, tomorrow is set to be the most magnificent so far, with Met Éireann predicting highs of 27C around inland areas.

If the mercury hits that height tomorrow, it will surpass this year's record of 25.7C, recorded at Shannon Airport on June 8.

Although today will be cloudier across the country, it is expected to remain dry and generally pleasant.

Temperatures will range between 22C and 27C tomorrow, although there is a risk of thundery showers breaking out later.

Met Éireann forecaster Harm Luijkx predicted glorious sunshine tomorrow, adding: "It will then turn to normal temperatures of between 17C and 21C, which are still reasonable.

"The weather will be more changeable with occasional showers, although it will remain dry and bright."
