The predicted sunny weather has finally arrived in Ireland and Met Eireann say we can expect temperatures to reach a sweltering ‘Fairly Warm’ as we head towards the weekend. People all over the country will at long last be able to sit outside in their gardens but only until around 6 o’clock obviously when it will become feckin’ freezing again. RTE weather reporter Gavin Molloy explained exactly what’s going on.
“If you look up right now you can clearly see blue bits through the gaps in the clouds. That’s the sky. That’s the colour it’s actually meant to be. In most countries it is, not dark grey and fluffy looking like in Ireland. People who have been abroad on holidays will be familiar with the sky.”
All over Ireland people are already basking in the glory of the Fairly Warm weather. 32 year-old gardener John Thompson from Galway told us “It’s just like living in Florida. I’m sweating buckets here. Only two hours ago the temperature was 17 degrees and then suddenly without warning it shot up to 18 degrees. Absolute carnage!”
Meanwhile health experts are warning people to be sensible and take precautions during the Fairly Warm weather. Doctor Amy Colgan is a skin specialist at Dublin’s Deacon Clinic and she has the following advice.
“Most Irish people aren’t used to this type of weather because we don’t get it very often so I would encourage everyone to strip down to their jocks and get outside now because this time next week it will no doubt be pissing rain again.”
