Ireland weather: Met Eireann reveal hottest day with scorcher of 29C but expert issues warning

Ireland will see temperatures once again touch up to 30C over the next few days thanks to a prolonged period of low pressure.

But it seems that things could take a turn after we have the scorching spell - with another weather expert issuing a warning that many won't like to hear.

Alan O'Reilly has been enjoying the conditions, but the man behind the CarlowWeather page on social media says that we could see a drop in temperatures and bit more of an 'unsettled' time from next week.

The hot snap comes less than a month after Ireland saw record-breaking temperatures of 33C hit in June.

Tuesday will be warm with highest temperatures of 20 to 25 degrees, potentially reaching 26 degrees in the south and east, in mostly light southwesterly or variable breezes.

We slowly see that starting to increase as the week goes on.

Currently, Met Eireann are predicting high temperatures of 27C for Wednesday and 28C for Thursday - with the weekend being where things really kick up a notch.

The forecast for Friday reads: "A hot day with long spells of sunshine. Dry for most with just the odd stray shower possible. Highest temperatures of 25 to 28 or 29 degrees in light easterly breezes. Staying very warm overnight with temperatures not falling below the mid to high teens."

That continues into Saturday, with things staying hot with highest temperatures of 25 to 29 degrees before falling slightly with highs of 23 to 27 degrees on Sunday.

This is where Alan O'Reilly believes the warm spell comes to an end.

He explained: "Latest weather model ensembles show the warm sunny spell lasting up to Sunday but then a risk of showers on Sunday and temperatures back down next week with more unsettled weather but this far out it is subject to change."
