Enjoying the heatwave? Met Eireann says we should expect rain on this day
All good things must come to an end.
And while all we ever do is complain about the weather, be it hot or cold, we are honestly devastated to think about the return of rain.
But alas, it will happen and here is when Met Eireann has predicted the sunshine to break.
In a statement they said:
"There is some uncertainty but latest indications suggest rather more in the way of cloud, but some sunshine. Dry much of the time on Monday but increasing chance of some showery rain developing, however at this stage amounts look small.”
And as for today, temperatures are expected to be very similar to yesterday which saw record breaking temperatures of 32 degrees at Shannon Airport, the highest recorded temperature in Ireland since July 2006.
Maximum temperatures from around the country today.
32.0°C at Shannon Airport is the highest temperature recorded in Ireland since July 2006 (32.3°C at Elphin, Roscommon).
Forecast max temps for tomorrow (Friday) are 24 to 27°C in the east & south, 28 to 32°C elsewhere. pic.twitter.com/xutxWHW05H

And it looks like it will be all clear skies for the rest of the day into the evening with predictions that it could reach 32 degrees again particulary in parts of the mid-west and west of Ireland.
Hot and sunny with afternoon temperatures, similar to yesterday, ranging from 27 to 30 degrees Celsius generally, but up to 32 degrees Celsius locally in parts of the mid-west and west, slightly lower along the coasts due to sea breezes. pic.twitter.com/GpNaoNt5Zz
