?IT’S OFFICIALLY A HEATWAVE…..
?IN MIDWESTERN AREAS
The meteorological station at Mount Dillon, Co.Roscommon, has recorded temperatures in excess of 25 degrees Celsius for the past 5 days in a row, reaching the required figure of Irish heatwave classification. Similar conditions have been experienced in parts of Galway, Mayo, Clare and parts of Westmeath, Offaly and North Tipperary.
Elsewhere, temperatures have been well above average, but they haven’t reached in excess of 25 degrees Celsius for 5 consecutive days, thereby missing out on official heatwave classification status. Meanwhile, temperatures will exceed 25 degrees Celsius again tomorrow afternoon, though with the highest temperatures now across the Midlands, Mideast and South of the country.
A change is expected to occur during Wednesday with temperatures falling well back to below normal values for early June. Despite the drop in temperatures our weather will remain relatively dry, away from northern and northwestern coasts, with the prolonged hydrological drought conditions continuing to exacerbate. This situation is likely to persist well into June, with a possible intensification through mid-June as hotter weather looks set to develop once again.
This could well be a summer to remember…..
