Met Éireann predicts temperatures in Ireland will be hotter than Rome this week

Olivia Hayes


Great news.

If you’re wondering when the weather is ever going to get a little bit warmer, then you’re going to be in luck this week.

Met Éireann has predicted that we’re going to see temperatures rise to 16 degrees in Ireland, which will be marginally hotter than Rome, which will come in at 14 degrees.

We’ll take it.

The weather forecaster said while temperatures on Monday and Tuesday will reach 14 degrees, we’ll see the most sun on Wednesday and Thursday.

“Wednesday will be dry and fairly sunny,” the forecast reads.

“Highest temperatures of 10 to 15 degrees, with highest values in the southeast, in light westerly breezes. Wednesday night will be cold again with lowest temperatures between -1 and +5 degrees. A slight frost is likely in Leinster and Munster.

“Thursday is looking largely dry and sunny as well with highest temperatures of 12 to 16 degrees. It will be a bit breezier with moderate southwest winds. On Thursday night some rain may reach northwest coasts later but elsewhere it will stay dry.”

Bring it on.
