Weather: Northern Ireland sizzles as temperatures soar

Northern Ireland is basking in a heatwave - but which town has recorded the highest temperature?

Official figures from the Meteogroup revealed the mercury rocketed at Castlederg yesterday, with it claiming the top temperature of 24.7C.

This was closely followed by Portglenone at 24.6C, St Angelo in Co Fermanagh at 24.1C and a not too shabby 23.5C in Belfast.

Gemma Plumb, a forecaster with the Meteogroup, said that the rest of Europe is bathing in sunshine at the moment and the temperatures Northern Ireland is experiencing are well above average for this time of year.

And there is more of the same over the coming days.

“It will remain very warm for the next few days,” Gemma said.

“Friday will see temperatures of 24C to 25C and it will remain dry and sunny once again on Saturday.

“Sunday currently looks like it should be mainly sunny and dry.

“There is a risk of isolated showers in the afternoon, but I think you would be very unlucky to get them,” she added.
