Met Éireann issues advisory for hot weather this week

An August heatwave appears to be on the way, as Met Éireann has issued an advisory for hot weather.

The forecaster says the country is set to experience a hot spell, particularly from Wednesday (August 10th) to Sunday next (14th).

Daytime temperatures will widely reach the mid- to high-twenties, remaining uncomfortably warm overnight as well.


They're encouraging people to be wary of heat stress - especially those more vulnerable.

There's also a risk of a High Solar UV index.

Anyone taking to the water is also being urged to make sure you do so in a safe manner, preferably where there are lifeguards.

In Waterford, there are five life-guarded beaches: Tramore, Dunmore East, Clonea, Bunmahon, and Ardmore.

The weather advisory is in effect from today (Sunday, 7th August) until midnight on this day week.
