Batten down the hatches: Met Éireann says gale force winds are on the way

Heavy rain? Check. Strong winds? Check. High risk of flooding? Check.

DON’T LET THE current mild weather lure you into a false sense of security – Met Éireann has warned that there’s some severe weather on the way.

Forecasters have issued a weather warning for tomorrow, advising that a mixture of high winds, heavy rain, abnormally low pressure and high tides will cause dangerous conditions in parts of east Leinster and south Munster.

There is also a high risk of flooding along coasts and rivers.

Gale force winds are expected to hit all coasts of Ireland early on Wednesday morning, reaching storm force on the south and western coasts.

Met Éireann has warned that between 30 to 50mm of rain is expected to fall – and it may be even higher in mountainous areas.

Here’s Met Éireann’s radar showing rainfall in Ireland as of 3 o’clock this afternoon:
