16th Aug 18 | News

Oh no...

Irish weather experts have issued a warning as the tail-end of Storm Ernesto is set to blow in across the country this weekend, bringing heavy downpours and humid temperatures.

The subtropical storm has been making its way across the Atlantic and is set to reach Ireland on Saturday night.

Thankfully the brunt of the storm will have died down by that time, so we should be in for heavy rain and strong breezes.

Carlow Weather's Alan O’Reilly's revealed on Twitter:

"Subtropical Storm Ernesto has formed out in the Atlantic, it is expected to become a post-tropical cyclone Thursday night or early Friday.

The track will see it head for Ireland Saturday night but at present it is forecast very breezy with some rain."
