Met Éireann have issued a new high-temperature weather warning to 23 counties across Ireland

Stock up on the sunscreen, because you're going to need it.

In the past 24 hours alone we've had a pollen warning, a water restriction warning, and an impending thunderstorm warning.

It is becoming more and more apparent that this country of ours simply is not equipped to be dealing with long bouts of this kind of heat.

And so Met Éireann have added to the pile, with not one but two new country-wide weather warnings.

The first is a reminder that there is no sign of rain on the horizon, so drought conditions are most likely set to continue straight through this entire week:

Status Yellow - Advisory warning for Ireland

With little or no rain forecast for most areas over the coming week, drought or near-drought conditions are expected to develop more widely across Ireland.

Valid from Saturday 30 June 2018 18:00 to Friday 06 July 2018 23:59.

Meanwhile, the second weather warning is for 23 counties across the country, as they should expect high-temperatures all day on Monday:

Status Yellow - High-Temperature warning

This warning is for Carlow, Dublin, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Longford, Louth, Meath, Offaly, Westmeath, Wexford, Wicklow, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary, Waterford, Cavan, Monaghan, Galway, Leitrim and Roscommon.

Temperatures will climb in excess of 27 degrees Celsius in parts on Monday.

Valid from Monday 02 July 2018 11:00 to Monday 02 July 2018 21:00.

If the other predictions come true, then we image Met.ie will be issuing another high-temperature weather warning to the country before the week is out.
