Today is set to be the warmest of the year so far as the heatwave continues.

Temperatures could reach above 31 degrees in parts, with six counties under a status orange weather warning.

The rest of the country has a status yellow alert – both run until Friday.

Paul Downes is a forecaster with Met Eireann:

“We had temperatures up near 30 degrees over the last few days.”

“Today looks like pushing it a bit further, into 30 or 31 degrees in places.”

“The South will be that little bit cooler, as the sunshine turns hazy in the afternoon.”
