Mmm, some of the temperatures posted on here are a little too high to be accurate- remember that temperature is recorded in the shade and not in your hand/in direct sunlight

Agreed Rc.

Meanwhile,it's just 19c now at 815am and beautifull.
Probably only going to rise a degree or 3 on that here due to the sea breeze.
My Weather station is after all located out in the middle of a field with a view 162ft above the irish sea..that tends to cool things [usually].

Outrageously warm as there is no wind to speak of.

Warmer today as there is absolutely no sea breeze it seems. Dublin airport at 21c and Valentia at 23c even by 10am. Just beautiful- glad I'm getting the good weather now before I start work for the summer next week.

No I could believe your temperature but it's the other few who reported even higher that would raise eyebrows.

Hmmm (x2) - see rc28 post #17 above. Demakinz, not to doubt you, but I suspect your thermometer may be over exposed?

21.7c here BTW. Light NE breeze.

Valentia hits 24c at 11am

If it got no breeze kicking in could theoretically hit 30c

Breeze kicking into east, maxes probably reached, 22c in Dublin.

The record high is 33.3 I believe way back in 1887...but that Geashill temp is about 6C out at the moment I would say. Judging by Met Eireanns latest weather station temps - 28 is possible somewhere by 3 or 4 oclock today...I think the June record is 29C, so probably safe for now....

Something dodgy there demakinz!

22.3c here now.

The ground is still too wet for temps to go over 27c I'd say - need a prolonged dry spell for higher temps.

Got to 31c here in July '06 but that was after a month with no rain.
