Met Éireann has predicted a mini heatwave around the country this week as temperatures soar into the 20s through to Sunday.

Today’s temperatures may reach highs of 21C but are likely to average from 16C to 18C in the west and northern regions.

The rest of today will be mostly dry with a mix of cloud and warm spells of sunshine, with some moderate northerly breezes.

Tuesday will be warm and dry with more sunshine around than today in general. Highest temperatures should reach peaks of 21C to 23C degrees in many areas, but will again hover between 16C and 20C in coastal settings.

The country is set to bask in the sunshine on Wednesday as the heat rises to highs of 21C to 24C on an overall bright, dry, and warm day.

The national forecaster has said that it should feel cooler in western and northern parts of Connacht and Ulster with highs of 16C to 20C.

The warm and dry weather is predicted to continue into Thursday, maintaining temperatures of 21C to 24C with good spells of sunshine. However, some light showers are possible in Leinster and Connacht with some light variable breezes.

On Friday, a third day of warm weather is expected with highest temperatures ranging from 20C to 24C. 

But while the day will start off dry with sunny spells, some scattered showers will develop by the afternoon, spreading towards the northeast as the evening comes.

An update from Met Éireann says “current indications suggest that Saturday will be mostly cloudy with rain continuing to move northwards and with showers following from the southwest. 

“It will be cooler with highest temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees and light to moderate southeast winds, becoming southwesterly later.”
