Met Eireann issue new weather warning for a number of counties

Flooding is expected in these counties.


Met Eireann has issued a new weather warning for this week.

The statement was regarding Munster, Dublin and seven other counties.

It was reported earlier this week that Storm Brian is set to hit Ireland over the weekend, particularly Friday and Saturday.


And while thankfully no status red warning has been issued, status yellow warnings have been announced for the weekend.

One yellow weather warning was issued for tomorrow (Thursday) for various parts of the country.


The statement said: “Rainfall warning for Munster, Dublin, Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow and Meath.

“Heavy rain is expected with accumulations 30 and 50mm possible.”

A Weather advisory for Ireland was also issued today which will be valid between 6pm on October 20th and midnight on October 21st.

“An Atlantic depression is expected to track eastwards over parts of Ireland on Saturday. South to southeasterly winds on Friday night will veer northwesterly on Saturday and are expected to reach weather warning criteria, at this stage.

“There is potential for mean wind speeds of 50 to 60km/h and gusts of 90 to 110km/h, especially in coastal counties.”

Thankfully the weather is expected to be far less intense than that of Hurricane Ophelia, however we suggest you get the wellies out and be mindful of flooding.

Update: Met Eireann has since released a new weather warning, with an updated status orange weather warning.
