Ireland looks set to enjoy an Indian summer from next week, with temperatures set to reach the mid-20s, according to various forecasts.

Having already predicted that the weather this weekend will be surprisingly sunny for those heading to Electric Picnic, Met Éireann’s current indications suggest that next week’s conditions will improve even more.

According to the Irish meteorological service, there will be some fog on Monday morning that will continue throughout the day near some coasts.

However, other than this, Met Éireann’s forecast says will be a “dry and mild day with plenty of sunshine” and highest temperatures between 21 to 25 degrees.

In regards to Tuesday, the meteorological service’s forecast also says that “good spells of sunshine” are expected, though there is the chance of some heavy or thundery showers amid highest temperatures of 20 to 24 degrees generally.

As for the rest of the week, Met Éireann states: “A good deal of uncertainty in the further outlook but current indications suggest that high pressure will gradually decline eastwards allowing for some rain or showers to move in.

“Temperatures continuing to reach the low to mid-twenties generally.”

That said, independent Irish forecaster Weather Alerts Ireland are predicting temperatures as high as 27 degrees for Wednesday and Thursday.

Posting on social media, it wrote: “Temperatures are expected to rise next week as hot air pushes over Ireland.

“On this evening ECMWF temperatures as high as 27°C are forecast.”
