#Weather - While Britain faces a heatwave with temperatures in excess of 30 degrees, thanks to a 'Spanish plume' of hot air sweeping up from Southern Europe today (17 July), only Ireland's south is expected to see the mercury rise significantly.
However, as Independent.ie reports, we're in for a few muggy nights and days of thundery rain that bring the risk of flash floods in vulnerable areas, with Met Éireann issuing a weather warning for the whole country.
"The biggest risk of flooding is with this band of thundery rain moving northwards but anywhere that gets a thunderstorm is at risk," says meteorologist Joan Blackburn.
