⚠️POTENTIALLY STORMY CONDITIONS SATURDAY
There is gathering evidence that a potentially significant storm may develop across many parts of the country during Saturday as a rapidly deepening Atlantic storm depression approaches Ireland from the west. The latest GFS and ECMWF highlight the risk of stormy conditions for a time on Saturday with winds reach in excess of 130km/h in western areas.
More terrible flooding for this weekend?
Accompanying the potentially stormy conditions will be periods of heavy rainfall also, with rainfall to totals of 25-40 mm in some locations between Friday and Sunday, leading to further flooding in many western and central parts of the country. Further enhancing of flood defences is required due to the expected rainfall over the weekend.
