Met Eireann, the Irish meteorological service, has announced that temperatures will reach up to 25 degrees Celsius this week. After a period of cooler and blustery weather, warm summer conditions will briefly return midweek. In Dublin, today will start off mostly dry with sunny spells. However, scattered showers are expected to develop throughout the morning and afternoon, with the possibility of heavier showers later in the day. The highest temperatures will range from 18 to 19 degrees Celsius, accompanied by a light to moderate west to northwest breeze.
Tomorrow, Dublin is expected to experience largely dry conditions with sunny spells. However, the evening will bring cloudier skies and isolated patches of light rain and drizzle. The highest temperatures will reach 17 or 18 degrees Celsius, with light to moderate southerly winds. While there is no specific forecast for Dublin beyond tomorrow, Met Eireann has provided a national outlook for the coming days.
On Tuesday, rain and drizzle will gradually clear to the east in the morning. Dry and sunny spells will develop in the afternoon, although occasional patches of light rain and drizzle may persist. The highest temperatures will range from 17 degrees Celsius in the north to 21 degrees Celsius in the south, accompanied by light northerly winds.
Wednesday will be warm, humid, and cloudy, with patchy rain and drizzle expected in the west and south at the start of the day. While many areas will remain dry, scattered patches of rain and drizzle will spread eastwards in the afternoon and evening. The highest temperatures will range from 20 to 24 degrees Celsius, with a light southerly breeze.
Thursday will bring another warm and humid day, with dry and sunny spells in many areas early on. However, cloud cover will increase in the southwest and west throughout the day, leading to outbreaks of rain that will slowly spread eastwards across the country later in the day.
