Surely going to be the hottest day of the year out west? 25 at Claremorris, Mt. Dillon and Newport at 1pm. 26.8 to beat. There is some cloud in the midlands and West getting going, hopefully that won't interfere.

Meanwhile a little old 20.3 degrees in D9. Warmer than yesterday. Looks like we'll finally have our proper heat tomorrow before it all cools back down big time.

Breeze is to die for here now. It’s a very warm breeze so doesn’t feel like a sea breeze

It's just that they are saying it will get to 20c where I am in north Donegal today. But I'm already sitting outside in nothing but a pair of shorts at 1030 and it is roasting. I can only imagine how hot it'll be at 3 or 4 after it builds.

Then it has 12c for tomorrow, a massive drop off.
It's always shade temperature, in that it's a sensor shaded in a Stevenson Screen but which itself is out in an open grass area. It's only measuring the temperature of the air. The temperature you feel on your skin in sunshine is not the same thing at all. Objects heat up when exposed to the sun (try sitting down on a dark deck chair after it's been sitting unoccupied under the sun), but that has nothing got to do with reported air temperature.

I saw someone posting an image of a mercury thermometer sitting on a sunny ledge in their garden and it was reading 42 degrees. They tried to claim it was 42 degrees in their garden. If that's the case it was 70 degrees in my driveway the other day when the bonnet of my car almost burnt my hand...

Newport has hit 27 (26.8) the other days too. Without that damned decimal we won't know yet if it's beaten that figure.

EDIT: I get the joke now...

Strange that Newport has hit 27 despite a southwesterly wind, which would be more from the coast. It may have only just turned southwesterly now.
