It looks like this "Irish heatwave" is going to continue well into next week

By "Irish heatwave", we mean slightly warmer than usual.

This summer will be talked about for decades, if not centuries, to come.

2019 had a summer that went on for, conservatively, a thousand years.

When was the last time you woke up and didn't find yourself in a pool of your own sweat?

When was the last time you didn't kick the duvet off the bed out of pure exhaustion-fueled frustration?

When was the last time your pockets were this full with receipts for ice-pops and impulse-bought sunscreen?

Well, it looks set to continue for at least another week, as Met.ie predict that Monday will see highs of 23 degrees, with "temperatures stay at around the seasonal normal with little change expected in the extended outlook period also."

There is some rain expected on Monday night and into Tuesday, especially in Leinster, but aside from that, it looks like we're getting more of the same.

Hooray?

Meanwhile, there is still an advisory in place for Irish holidaymakers heading to Europe, as several countries experience record high temperatures this week.

Stay hydrated, folks!
