We have our first Weather Warning for high temperatures now, as it will get above 27c today. The latest charts show little if any breakdown up to and including the weekend. I’ll have a further update around lunch time with the latest information.
Only in Ireland could we hit the dizzying heights of 23 degrees and be subjected to dire warnings of dead rabbits on the national broadcaster.
