Meteorologists say heat stress, high solar UV index, and a risk of water-related incidents are some of the issues to look out for over the coming days as the country struggles to cope with the searing July heat.
What to expect in the coming days…
Any mist and fog patches will quickly clear on Saturday morning to give a warm, bright and mostly dry day with long spells of sunshine and just the odd light shower. Highest temperatures will range from 21 to 26 degrees, warmest in the north of Munster.
Sunday will be very warm and dry with widespread hazy sunshine and highest temperatures of 22 to 28 degrees, with hot conditions across most areas on Monday and temperatures of 26 to 29 degrees, “possibly reaching 30 to 32 degrees in some parts”.
The main peak period for grass pollen has now passed but hayfever sufferers have been warned that high counts will occur during warm and dry periods, reducing from around July 20th to moderate risk.
