You know the drill at this stage because it’s going to be another whopper day in the capital with temperatures reaching highs of 26C for another hot and mostly sunny day.

Met Eireann’s high temperature weather advisory is still in place for the rest of the week with Thursday hitting that unbearable 30C mark before a dirty ominous change on Friday.

While the temperature won’t dip too much at the weekend either, “scattered showers will possibly develop throughout Friday with the potential for some thundery downpours” according to Met Eireann.

It will be another warm and humid night tonight too with temperatures not falling below the mid-teens staying dry with long clear spells – so brace yourself for another night of the window open for the time being.

Here’s how the rest of this heatwave week is looking:

Tomorrow: “Dry, hot and mostly sunny again on Wednesday. Highs of 25 to 28 degrees, a little less warm along the coast in a light southeast breeze.”

Thursday: “It will be another hot and dry day with long spells of sunshine in most areas. Sunniest in the north and east, though it will be a little cloudier than previous days in the south and west. Highs of 26 to 30 degrees in a light southeasterly breeze.”

Friday: “A generally dry day over the northern half of the country with spells of warm sunshine. However, scattered showers will develop over the southern half of the country through the day, with the potential for some thundery downpours. Remaining very warm, but temperatures will be a few degrees lower than previous days with highs of 24 to 27 degrees in a light to moderate easterly breeze.”

Weekend: “It will turn a little more cloudy and showery on Saturday and Sunday, but most of the showers will be confined to the east of the country, with lots of dry weather elsewhere. There will be spells of warm sunshine too, best in western counties. It will be less warm than this week, though temperatures will remain above normal, with daytime highs of 20 to 25 degrees and mild nights. Winds will be light northeasterly, moderate on coasts.”

Next week: “It will likely stay mostly dry on Monday and Tuesday with showers at times in the east. Highs of 20 to 25 degrees, in light winds.”
