Potential impacts include heat stress, uncomfortable sleeping conditions, and a higher risk of water-related incidents.
“On Thursday morning, there will be spells of sunshine and scattered showers which will spread from the south.
“Some of the showers are likely to be heavy and thundery with the potential for spot flooding. The afternoon will bring plenty of warm sunshine and isolated heavy downpours.”
It looks like temperatures in Cork will remain in the mid-twenties for most of the weekend too.
