TEMPERATURES SET TO RISE INTO THE LOW 20S NEXT WEEK WITH THE RISK OF THUNDERSTORMS NEXT WEEK
Temperature next week look set to rise into the low twenties across Ireland with the warmers temperatures over the week looking set to be the west and northwest of Ireland.
Across the eastern half of Ireland temperatures will be a little cooler with temperatures into the high teens and possibly hitting 20C on some days.
Across the west, southwest and midlands temperatures will range between 17C to 21C and 22C to 23C across the northwest of Ireland.
Over the week there will also be some nice sunny days with uv levels high in places so make sure to slap on the factor 50 as UV rays are harmful to human skin.
From Tuesday to Friday there will also be the risk of Thunderstorm in parts of Ireland due to warm and humid conditions coming from the continent.
The reason there will be thunderstorms
Next week the Jetstream will move northwards from Ireland and the UK and as it does, so it moves between a upper low north of Scandinavia and a upper high over Scandinavia. Instead of the jet stream moving on eastwards it wraps around the Upper low over Scandinavia back towards Ireland and the UK. This is known as Anti Cyclonic disruption.
Over Europe sits another upper low which has lead to severe thunderstorms over a large part of Europe already this week and with the Anti Cyclonic disruption over Scandinavia this allows the upper low in Europe to drift closer with warm and humid conditions that will trigger of thunderstorms over Ireland, England and Wales.
