Drought Warning Issued By Met Eireann

Share this article


Met Eireann have issued a drought warning until Friday.

Drought or near drought conditions are expected to last throughout the coming week.

 

Met Eireann's John Eagleton says it will be extremely dry over the next few days;

"Very little rain is expected out of the forecast horizon which is into the middle of next week. Less than one millimetre for the bulk of the country, maybe the odd shower here and there in the south and west. But certainly less than 4 millimetres everywhere."

He says these conditions have been seen in Ireland before but it's very unusual:

"It's quite a while actually, I'd say we'd probably have to go as far as '95. Certainly we had it in '75, '76 but I couldn't be absolutely sure about it. I wouldn't say it's unprecedented but its very unusual."
