Met Éireann's weekend weather forecast for Waterford
Met Éireann has said the heatwave will continue in Waterford over the weekend and into next week with temperatures likely to reach 30 degrees again.
Friday, July 5 will be mainly dry, with a little hazy sunshine possible at times, especially in the east. There will be a good deal of cloud, possibly bringing a few spots of mist or drizzle, mainly along the west coast, but cloud will break up later in the day, with sunshine developing. Temperatures could exceed 25 degrees in mostly light winds.
Friday night will see most areas dry, with clear intervals, but cloudier in the west and north, with possibly a little patchy mist or drizzle near west and northwest coasts. Temperatures won't fall below 11 degrees overnight.
Saturday's forecast is for dry weather in most areas, with good sunshine and mostly light southerly or variable breezes. The west and north will be mostly cloudy, with a few spots of drizzle, mainly in coastal areas. It will be very warm in much of Munster, with maximum temperatures in the mid to high 20s. Waterford and the South West coast may see slightly lower values with temperatures of around 22 degrees forecast.
Sunday will once again be very warm, with some hazy sunshine. Temperatures will range from 24 to 28 degrees celsius generally, but cooler in coastal areas, especially on Atlantic coasts, in light to moderate variable winds.
Beyond that, the early indications suggest that warm and mostly dry conditions will continue for most of next week, with the best of the sunshine in the midlands, east and south.
There is a small chance of some scattered showers from midweek. Temperatures will still be in the mid to high 20s, but a few degrees lower in coastal areas in sea breezes.
