New Weather Warnings In Place For Whole Country As Map Shows Things Are Set To Get Worse

James Fenton

Last week was a rough ride in terms of weather so you’d imagine Ireland won’t be sad to see the back of it.

That is until we learn of new weather warnings issued by Met Éireann which cover the whole country, leading us to consider hiding away for another few days.

The first such warning was issued last night and covers Munster, Connacht and Donegal from 1pm today until 4am tomorrow. Met Éireann forecasts ‘South to southeast winds will reach mean speed at times between 50 and 65km/h and gusts between 90 and 100 km/h. Winds may exceed these limits in coastal areas.’

The same warning was then issued for Leinster, Cavan and Monaghan and will be valid from this evening at 7am until tomorrow morning at 9am.

Meanwhile, the experts have also issued two maps which compare last week’s rainfall to the upcoming week and it doesn’t make great reading for the most part. While the Midlands will mostly see its rainfall reduced, it looks like coastal areas are going to be hist even harder in the next seven days.

Both maps can be viewed in the tweet below.

Yikes. Stay safe all and fingers crossed it all clears up before the Christmas.
