Temperatures To Reach Record Breaking 50 Degrees As Irish People Warned To Be Extremely Careful If Holidaying In Spain Or Portugal

What are you plans for the Bank Holiday Weekend? Are you taking it nice and chill or are you going to let it rip and just go on a mad one?

Well, spare a thought for those in Spain and Portugal as the face record-breaking temperatures over the weekend and following week.

CCN is reporting that the heatwave has left famers suffering drought conditions and it is being said that they will break the 5-0 barrier.

The record was originally set in Athens in 1977 when temps hit 47.4 degrees in the Greek Capital

The weather here in Ireland for the Bank Holiday will be a good bit different but there’s still some hope of getting a sunny weekend.

Friday – as you can already tell – is going to be shitty enough but Saturday will bring with it sunny spells and temps of 18-23.

These temps have the potential to rise to 25 degrees on Sunday with Leinster being the warmest part of the country.

But, the end of the Bank Holiday will bring with it some rain and drizzle with highs of 17 to 22 degrees in light breezes.
