By next week, it's predicted that temperatures could hit as high as 27 DEGREES as an 'African air plume' makes it way across Europe. It's 1,500 miles wide and will hit Europe by the start of the week, RSVP Live reports . The 'African air plume' will be arriving on Monday from North Africa, moving across Southern Europe until it reaches the UK and Ireland. The wonderful sunshine coming to Ireland could make this the hottest April in seven years - even beating Malibu, California. Met Eireann say that the week will start off wet and windy but fortunately will become more settled.
