Met Éireann issues status yellow high-temperature warning for six counties
In a word, sweltering.
Granted, we're not diminishing the severity of the latest weather warning from Met Éireann, but it makes a welcome change to see a warning issued for high temperatures as opposed to wind and rain.
People living in Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork, Kerry and Limerick to take heed of the rising temperatures on Thursday in a warning that kicks in at 1pm.
A status yellow high-temperature warning for those six counties states that "temperatures will be in excess of 27.0 degrees Celsius, during Thursday afternoon".
The warning is valid from Thursday, 27 June at 1pm and is in place until 7pm on that same evening.
If you're out and about, enjoy the good conditions but stay hydrated and if it's sunny, apply some sunscreen.
After all, nobody wants to end up looking like Pinchy the lobster.
