Ah Here – These Parts Of Ireland Issued With Heavy Thunder Weather Warning

Darragh Berry

All good things must come to an end, right? 

Well it seems like that big yellow thing that has been occupying our Irish skies for the last week or two is about to be replaced with something much worse.

A  Status Yellow Advisory weather warning has been issued for the whole of Ireland, dispelling the Leaving Cert weather myth that we all believed would live on this year.

They say that: “Heavy thundery downpours on Friday will lead to high intensity rainfall in a short period of time. Localised spot flooding possible. The Western half of the country and the Midlands most at risk at present.”

The warning was issued at 1pm on Thursday and will be in place from Friday at 12pm until the nighttime at 9pm. 

There has also been a Status Yellow Blight Warning in place since Wednesday meaning that weather conditions conducive to the spread of Potato Blight are likely to occur at times in the next few days in Co. Donegal and with a risk also in southern coastal counties. There will be opportunities for spraying.

Thursday will also bring with it warm and isolated showers near Atlantic coasts, but otherwise it will be dry in most areas today with sunny spells. 

There is a slight risk of an isolated thundery shower in the north midlands and northwest later in the afternoon and evening. 

Highest temperatures will generally be 21 to 26 degrees with light variable winds. 

Any isolated shower in the north midlands or northwest will die away and it will become dry and calm in the nighttime. A few mist patches will occur with lowest temperatures of 10 to 14 degrees.
