Met Éireann issue a pretty freaky weather warning for the week ahead
We all love the sun, but this isn't exactly what we want to hear.
On Saturday morning, Met Éireann warned that "drought or near-drought conditions will persist through the coming week." We've already been a few weeks without rain, and it seems as though that sunny streak will be continuing until at least midnight on Friday July 6.
The warning came into effect at 10am this morning, and encompasses the entire country.
Drought or near-drought conditions will persist through the coming week.

The announcement follows several conservation measures that have been introduced by Irish Water in the past couple of days.
On Friday, Irish Water announced that there would be a hosepipe ban put in place for the Greater Dublin Area for at least a month.
"As the warm weather continues, the demands on water supplies is outstripping the supply in several areas around the country, including the Greater Dublin Area, with increased demand at 10% above normal or more," Irish Water warned.
This trend seems set to continue for the foreseeable future, so the Irish public will need to be a little bit more careful when it comes to water conservation.
