By COLIN BARTLEY
DON’T put the summer clothes away just yet – one last blast of summer is on the way, according to forecaster.
Met Éireann says the outlook for the coming days is quite good and temperatures could soar to up to 24 or 25 degrees.
Tomorrow and Friday will see the best of the weather with long sunny spells and temperatures up about six degrees on today. However, there is still the chance of an isolated heavy shower.
Kilkenny will see the best of the weather over the coming days. Today the sun will focus on the South East, with highest temperatures in Kilkenny, South Tipperary, Waterford and into Cork.
Friday the best of the weather moves north, with Kilkenny, Carlow, Kildare, Wicklow and Dublin getting the best of it. Met Eireann says it could reach 25 degrees in some spots.
Saturday and Sunday will remain dry and sunny, but temperatures will drop slightly to around 21 or 22 degrees.
Meanwhile, the national forecaster has also issued a potato blight warning to farmers and gardeners over the next four days due to the expected warm and humid conditions.
