We finally know when summer heat will hit Ireland

Finally.

After what feels like months of continuous bad weather, Ireland is finally set for a blast of summer sun, and it's closer than you think.

Thanks to the Azores High, the country is set to embark on hot, sunny days and they're only a matter of days away.

High pressure is moving towards the country in the middle of next week and along with it are some very sunny conditions.

Met Éireann forecaster Emer Flood told the Irish Mirror: “The hope is that BBQ weather is on the way for most areas next weekend but we’ll have to see as the week progresses how warm it’s actually going to get.

“There is a large area of high pressure positioned over the Azores at the moment and that high will start to build towards us as the week progresses.

"Unfortunately, there will still be some weak fronts skirting around the north of the high, bringing some light rain or drizzle at times particularly towards the first half of the week, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday."

But, luckily, from Tuesday onwards, we'll start to see some serious improvements.

Sunday is set to see temperatures reach 19C, with the same temperature to hit on Monday, but rising to the 20s by Tuesday and Wednesday.

Met Eireann said: "High pressure will gradually build over Ireland. Rather cloudy early in the week with patchy rain or showers at times, especially in the west and north. Some sunshine further east and south. Becoming warmer and sunnier by the end of the week."
