Bank Holiday Monday's weather report forecasts up to 25 degrees around the country

Let the sunny times roll.

Stars must have aligned in some way, shape or form this weekend – as it appears that the whole of Ireland has managed to combine both a long weekend and high temperatures all in one.


After some pretty desperate weather forecasts regarding thunder and spot flooding were forecast by Met Éireann earlier on in the week, the sun did us a solid by rearing its head from the intermittent clouds, only to shine through and give the country a cracker of a bank holiday weekend.

And, according to the national weather service, the heat doesn't stop here.

"Monday will be another warm day with variable cloud amounts and sunshine, once early mist and fog patches clear," the forecast reads.

"Scattered showers will break out from early afternoon, and some of the showers will be heavy with the potential for thundery downpours. However, many areas will escape, staying mostly dry. Top temperatures of 19 to 25 degrees, coolest along northern and eastern coasts affected by moderate northeasterly breezes.


"Winds will be mainly light and variable elsewhere."

It seems that Dublin, Connacht and Munster will be benefitting from the sunshine the most, with highs of 24 and 25 degrees forecast for the whole day,. Slightly cooler temperatures are expected around coastal regions.

Ulster will be a little cooler, with highs of 19 to 22 Celsius in mostly light north to northeast breezes forecast.

Monday night is set to be dry and calm, with most of the evening showers dying out.


Road users are being asked to remain vigilant in the evening, as widespread mist is expected to thicken into dense fog in place. Otherwise, close and humid weather will grace the country, with lowest temperatures of 11 to 14 degrees.

Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to have relatively similar weather, with warm and mostly dry with spells of hazy sunshine forecast. Some scattered heavy and possibly thundery showers are expected to develop over parts of east Munster east Connacht and west Ulster, with top temperatures 19 to 22 degrees.

Current indications suggest that fresher, cooler and more changeable weather is set to develop from Thursday onwards.
