Met Éireann issues high temperature advisory after hottest day

 

Get that SPF out as Ireland is in for a warm, sunny week ahead.

Met Éireann has issued a high temperature advisory valid from noon on Sunday until noon on Friday.

The forecaster said temperatures will remain “very warm until Friday, with day time temperatures into the high twenties and very humid at night with temperatures staying in the mid to high teens.”

It comes after the hottest day of the year so far was recorded in Ireland this weekend.

Ballywatticock, in Co Down, Northern Ireland, reached 31.2 degrees on Saturday, while in the Republic, temperatures were confirmed to have reached over 29 degrees.

And if you’re planning a trip to the beach, Water Safety Ireland has issued a reminder to stay cautious around the water.

“Temperatures are high this weekend so put safety first at our waterways. Never bring inflatable toys to the beach & always supervise children closely. Swim at lifeguarded waterways between the flags & stay within your depth,” they advised.

The DCSPA has also issued advice for those who have pets to prevent heatstroke.

“It’s early and it’s already very hot. Keep your pets safe. Don’t walk them,” they said. “Make sure they have somewhere to chill in the shade. Plenty of water with ice cube added for them to play with. ”
Dublin Fire Brigade has issued a notice after they were called to fight a gorse fire on Howth Head. They warned all outdoor use of fires, barbecues and other open ignition sources be avoided on forest lands and in other high-risk areas until further notice.

The notice, which is valid until Friday 23rd, said: “extreme caution is also advised with respect to hay making and the use of machinery and other agricultural activity that may also present a risk of fire in dry vegetation on cultivated land types in current conditions.”
