The collab of the decade.
A thunderstorm warning has been issued for the whole of Ireland as temperatures are set to rise to 28 degrees.
The weather warning, issued by Met Éireann for today and tomorrow, forecasts a warm and sunny day (Thursday), with temperatures ranging from 20 to 24 degrees in the west and between 25 to 28 degrees in the east.
Later on this evening, however, downpours and thunder are expected in some parts of the country with the potential for thunderstorms across Ireland.
"Heavy thunderstorms are expected to develop later on Thursday and Thursday night with some severe downpours, hail and spot flooding," said Met Éireann.
"Due to the localised nature of thunderstorms some parts of the country will remain dry."
The yellow thunderstorm weather warning is valid from 4pm this afternoon to 9am tomorrow morning.
The same warning has been issued for Antrim, Armagh, Down, Fermanagh, Tyrone, Derry by the UK Met Office, valid from 4pm today until 9am tomorrow.
Ulster will be most at risk of thunder and flooding. While many places will stay dry throughout the night, where thunderstorms do occur there will be a risk of spot flooding and hail.
