Weather warning remains in place with further storm and flood risks

Don’t get rid of those sand bags just yet.

MET ÉIREANN STILL has an orange national weather warning in place, forecesting strong winds during the week and into next weekend.

Strong to galeforce winds will persist tomorrow across the eastern half of the country with clearer, brighter weather in the west.

“Very unsettled” weather will continue into the rest of the week with a risk of very strong winds at times and with above average rainfall.

Extremely windy weather is predicted for Tuesday with winds reaching gale force and a risk of flooding in some areas.

Later in the week and moving into the weekend, it will remain breezy and again there is a risk of stormy conditions and high winds.

Today residents in the areas worst affected by flooding in Limerick were returning to their homes to assess the damage. Minister of State Jan O’Sullivan has said a national response is needed to address the devastation caused.
