Warm weather coming from The Azores will guarantee Ireland has a very hot September

There are some reports that the heat could remain well above average all the way up to Christmas.

Earlier this week we reported that Ireland should probably anticipate an Indian Summer, with the higher-than-usual temperatures expected to remain well into September.

Well, now it looks like we've got another piece of evidence that this is going to happen, due to some great weather coming in from The Azores near Portugal, which will eventually find its what Ireland-wards.

That isn't quite as extreme as what some outlets in the UK are reporting, in which they're preparing for the heat to remain for at least another 90 days, possibly leading all the way up to Christmas.

According to the Midlands Weather Channel, the weather models continue to indicate that a largely dry, settled spell of weather, with good sunshine, is likely to commence as we enter the first week of September.

Indeed much of the country will enjoy a dry weekend also, with just the chance of some outbreaks of light rain and drizzle in western areas through Sunday evening.

From next week onwards an area of high pressure is expected to build in from the Azores, leaving our weather largely dry, bright and sunny.

Temperatures will be rather mixed, with overnight lows possible even given a touch of grass frost in some rural areas, but daytime values will reach as high as 17-20 degrees Celsius, possibly reaching a little higher towards the end of next week.
