This is when Irish weather will return to business as usual warns expert

An Irish weather expert has declared the heatwave is over with normal weather to return next week.

Met Eireann has also said that conditions are likely to get cooler with temperatures dropping back into the teens amid the ‘Atlantic regime’ resuming.

Carlow weatherman Alan O’Reilly has said that after 18 days of above 25C the heatwave will come to an end today.

‘After 18 days of above 25c it looks like the #heatwave will end at my station today,’ he posted on Twitter.

But O’Reilly said the drought is going nowhere just yet, adding: ‘But the absolute #drought is on day 22 and could last a few more days.

‘While the heatwave may be over we aren’t even half way through the meteorological season of Summer yet!!’

While the weekend will remain hot, Met Eireann has also forecast temperatures to dip next week, with the mercury to fall to between 18 and 22 degrees from Monday as the ‘Atlantic regime’ resumes.

A spokesman said: ‘A fresher day on Monday. Still a good deal of cloud around, producing scattered light showers, particularly over western areas,

‘But some brighter and sunnier intervals also. Maximum temperatures of 18 to 22 degrees in westerly breezes.

‘Tuesday: Similar conditions to Monday seem likely, with spells of sunshine interspersed with cloudier intervals and scattered light showers. 

‘A gradual transition to a more changeable or mixed weather pattern than of late is probable, with all parts seeing some spells of sunshine but rain or showers at times too with an Atlantic regime resuming.’
