Temperatures to reach 27 degrees today, but the good weather won't last for long

Something's got to give, lads.

In case you haven't noticed, the weather has been class. Like, abnormally good.

Like, sit outside for the entire day working and only venture inside to go to the bathroom and maybe to get a snack good. That's how good.

The bank holiday was no exception. And as it turns out, neither is today, because temperatures are due to rise as high as 27 degrees.

No, really. For real.

According to Met Éireann, most areas across the country will remain incredible hot today (June 2) with top temperatures of between 22 to 27 degrees.

These temperatures will be highest over Leinster and Munster, but the rest of the country will also be reaping the benefits of the hot weather with fairly decent highs of between 15 and 20 degrees.


Coastal areas will be more windy, naturally, but the good news is the majority of the day will remain sunny.

The bad news is that there's a good amount of showers coming tonight and leading into tomorrow. Although most accumulations are expected to be small, there is a slight chance of some heavier bursts in the east and southeast.

There will be lows of between 7 to 11 degrees freshening north to northwest winds as we come into Wednesday, with blustery showers expected along the eastern and southeastern coasts.

It'll be bright in the northwest, but there will also be strong northerly breezes at play. Temperatures will struggle to get to 11 to 14 degrees in the northwest, but there will be highs of 15 to 20 degrees elsewhere.

Listen, it's not the worst. As long as it's not torrential, we'll take it.
