Met Éireann has issued a status Yellow weather warning for the entire county as we experience one of the hottest weeks in many years.

They advised people to ‘apply sun screen before going outside’ and ‘if possible wear a hat, and keep hydrated’.

Met Éireann says that maximum temperatures tomorrow, Tuesday, will be 24 to 28 degrees, with 24 to 30 degrees expected on Wednesday and Thursday.

The sunshine will be hazy at times due to high clouds and it will be a few degrees cooler in coastal areas with onshore sea breezes.

“Mostly sunny from Wednesday to Friday inclusive, but the sunshine is likely to be hazy in nature at times, due to some high clouds,” reads the official forecast.

“Daytime temperatures are expected to be in the mid to high twenties quite widely, possibly a little higher locally on some days. But values will be a little lower in coastal areas, with afternoon sea breezes, so feeling a little fresher and possibly more bearable. The nights will be close and humid too, with temperatures, at their lowest, remaining in the low to mid-teens, sometimes higher.”
