High-temperature warning issued for 6 counties

Temperatures are set to hit 40C and forecasters have warned that there will be record-breaking temperatures this month, with the mercury set to peak mid-week.

Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow high temperature warning for six counties in the west and south of the country.

Met Eireann says temperatures will be in excess of 27 degrees from 1 o'clock on Thursday afternoon.

Tonight will be dry with good clear spells and perhaps just the odd shower in the south-west towards dawn.

American Airlines CEO talks Boeing 737 Max
Since two fatal crashes caused Boeing's 737 Max jets to be grounded since March, the company has been faced with serious hurdles. The legal action was joined by over 400 fellow pilots, trained to fly the fourth-generation narrow-body 737 MAX aircraft.

Overall, settled and warm weather is forecast for the next few days. Lowest temperatures will be 11 to 15 degrees generally, but cooler in the north with lows around 8 to 10 degrees and some mist patches there. "Northeasterly winds will be light to moderate".

It will again be a mild and humid night, with lowest temperatures staying around 13 to 17°.

"Saturday will see scattered showers and some sunny spells, some of the showers could turn heavy or even thundery".

But it will be warm and close for most areas, with top temperatures between 24 to 28°C.
