Sunny Scorching Summer –In Ireland!!!!
Updated : May 1, 2009
The first day of summer didn’t start too brightly, but by all accounts we can expect the rest of the summer months to be sizzling and scorching.
Weather experts say we are on course for a hot, dry, "barbecue summer" -- one of the best in years the Evening Herald revealed. You can’t get happier news than that!!
Scorching temperatures to rival Greece and Spain are coming our way with very little rain.
Those who can't afford a sun holiday abroad will be able to bask in sunshine rising above 30C in the comfort of their own back gardens.
Meterorologists say it's quite normal for a sunny spell to follow two summers, which brought some of the worst floods in decades.
They optimistically predict weather will be warmer and drier than average for the entire months of June, July and August.
These months are likely to see prolonged spells of hot weather with temperatures above the magic 30C mark -- something which only happened in 2008 on a single day.
There will be some rain, but the washout weather of the past two years is very unlikely, and the prospect of three soggy summers in a row is "extremely small".
