Irish Daily Mirror|June 1, 2020
Ireland is set for the hottest day of the year so far today with temperatures expected to hit a scorching 27C.
And the sizzling June Bank Holiday weather is here to stay with temperatures largely in the high 20s around the country.
Met Eireann said the mercury reached 26.5C yesterday, while Friday hit 26.8C.
This comes as the weather station in Dublin’s Phoenix Park recorded the driest spring in the capital since records began in 1850. And forecaster Gavin Gallagher said the warm, dry conditions we’ve seen over the past couple of weeks will continue.
He told the Irish Mirror: “For Monday, it will be warmest in the midlands and the west, while it will be a degree or two less in the east and the south.
“But all of the country will get above 20C and it will be dry.
“It will be warm and pleasant, so for the first day of summer it will be a summer’s day.”
