Ireland set to have another roasting bank holiday thanks to 'two week long heatwave'

Stunning.

Remember the May bank holiday? It was pretty warm, like.

And the June bank holiday is set to be just as, if not more, warm too.

Incredible news, we know.

At the beginning of May, temperatures soared to 23 degrees in most parts of the country which was absolutely ideal for those of us who weren't working and actually knew how to put on sun cream.

And now it looks like the June bank holiday is going to be just as hot - and maybe even hotter.

While Met Eireann don't yet have predictions for the bank holiday, weather experts in the UK are saying that a two week long heatwave is going to make the June bank holiday hot AF.

Maybe even as hot as 30 degrees. Intense.

Exacta Weather forecaster James Madden told The Express that the bank holiday is going to pave the way into a warm and settled summer.

He said:

"The remainder of this month will remain predominantly summery and confidence is increasing for another burst of very warm to hot temperatures for the next bank holiday weekend.

“It is plausible that maximum temperatures could rise into the high 20Cs or even the low 30Cs for several days in a row within this period."

Sounds ideal.

And it'd be even more ideal if we got these exact conditions over here in Ireland too.

What Met Eireann do know is that temperatures will be up in "the high teens" this Thursday and Friday with Saturday being "another warm day with sunny spells."

Lovely.
