The latest ARPEGE high resolution model currently is shown the possibly of temperatures across parts of Ireland rising to as high as 34C on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday as the very strong area of high pressure the Azores high is now in place.
The latest HIRLAM and AROME model is also suggesting a the same with temperatures in the low 30s over the 3 days.
On Tuesday temperatures will get as high as 28C to 29C over the day and possibly up to 30s in the midlands and inland Connacht over the day with very high UV levels.
Hay fever suffers should also now not that the pollen count is very high and will remain so over the rest of this week.
Over the weekend temperatures will drop down to the mid to low twenties again remaining warm with nice sunshine. Heading into next week there will then be the risk of thundery showers as i suggested last week due to a thundery low of the south of Ireland which I will update more on in the next update in a few hours.
The highest ever temperature every recorded in Ireland was on 26 June1887 with a temperature of 33.3c Kilkenny Castle. This could well be beaten this week.
