Yesterday's temperatures were even higher than we thought, but today will be even hotter again

No sign of it dying down in the next few days, either.

Yes, the temperatures are making it difficult to sleep, and yes, anyone who works full time gets weird looks if they try to come into the office in a a three-piece-suit, but with the trousers cut into shorts.

Anyways, yesterday we reported that the highest temperatures in Ireland were measured at just below 29 degrees, but it turns out that it was even higher than that.

This was the layout of the country at 4.41pm, according to Met Eireann:

And as for today? Well, with a less cloudy, less hazy start to the day, that means the temperatures can begin climbing even faster, and we inch ever closer to the record high of 33.1 degrees recorded in Kilkenny back in 1887. We'll report back this evening once all of the information has been collated.
