Highs of 20 degrees forecast for this bank holiday weekend

It's gonna be a scorcher.

It's time to get the BBQ out and slap on some factor 50 because we're in for some pretty toasty weather this bank holiday weekend.


According to Met Éireann, the weekend will see highs of 20 degrees, though there may be some scattered showers at later points.

Tomorrow, Saturday 4 June will be the warmest day of the weekend, with highest temperatures ranging between 14 and 20 degrees.

The forecast for tomorrow reads: "Dry and sunny in many areas, cloudier in southern parts however with well scattered showers there."

The west will see the warmest weather while it will be a bit cooler in the eastern parts of the country.


By evening, you may want to move your garden party indoors, especially if you're in Munster or Leinster, where scattered showers will be more frequent. It will be clearer in the north, according to Met Éireann.

While Sunday will see some sunny spells and warm weather ranging between 14 and 19 degrees, scattered showers are expected and these may turn heavy at times, particularly in the south and east of Ireland.

These scattered showers will continue into Monday, especially in Munster and Leinster, but you're in luck if you're in the west or north of the country as it will be sunnier here. Highest temperatures for Monday will be between 14 and 18 degrees, and it will be warmest in the northeast.


Classically enough, by the time the bank holiday is over, the sunny weather will return. Tuesday will be mainly dry and sunny, with some showers in the south. Highest temperatures will be between 15 and 20 degrees, and the northwest will be warmest.

Met Éireann's current suggestions for next week suggest that while temperatures will be in the late teens, rain will also persist.
