More Wet and Windy Weather On The Way This Weekend

There’s a warning that heavy and persistent rain could lead to some flooding over the weekend, as the unsettled weather continues.

Storms Dudley and Eunice have now passed over Ireland, with the latter having caused significant disruption on Friday.

However, forecasters say more wet and windy weather can be expected on both Saturday and Sunday.

A status yellow rain warning has been issued for Cavan, Donegal, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo.

Met Éireann says persistent rain followed by heavy showers will lead to some localised flooding in parts of those counties.

The warning’s valid for 24 hours from 6pm today.

Meanwhile, a status yellow wind warning for Clare, Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Donegal and all of Connacht kicks in at 9am tomorrow morning.

A separate wind warning for Leinster, Cavan, Monaghan, Tipperary and Waterford kicks in at 11am on Sunday.

That will also be in effect for 24 hours.

Met Éireann says tonight will be a wet night with widespread outbreaks of rain.

Forecasters say: “Tomorrow will be wet and very windy with strong to near gale force southwest winds.

“Rain will be heavy at times leading to localised flooding.

"Rain will clear southeastwards to frequent showers through the afternoon, some heavy with possible hail.”
