Galway records hottest daily temperatures in Ireland

Defying all normal expectations of the wet and windy west coast, Galway recorded the hottest temperatures of anywhere in Ireland yesterday,

Met Eireann’s weather stations at Athenry and Belmullet, Co. Mayo measured the hottest temperatures in the country on Tuesday at 17.2 degrees.

Amazingly, the west of Ireland dominated the upper end of the temperature map yesterday, with Mayo and Galway also taking third and fourth place at Newport and Mace Head stations.

Today’s weather is also looking positive according to Met Eireann, with a mix of sunny spells and some lightly cloudy skies forecast for most of the day.

Temperatures will also stay summery, reaching highs of 17 to 18 degrees with a moderate southwest breeze.

Things will turn cloudier tonight with outbreaks of rain which are expected to become heavier on Thursday, with the odd rumble of thunder added to the mix.
