20th Sep 18 | News

Oh dear...

Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow rainfall warning for seven counties this morning and advised how a ‘very disturbed’ low pressure system heading our way could morph into the second named storm of the season this weekend - Storm Bronagh.

The warning comes into effect for Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow, Cork, Tipperary and Waterford at 9pm this morning and will remain in place until 9pm tonight.

According to the notice:

"Rain will be persistent and heavy at times especially during the afternoon with risk of spot flooding. Totals of 25 to 40mm expected, highest values likely near coast."

Looking further ahead, the outlook for the weekend does not look good at the moment. According to weather experts, if the wide area of low pressure continues to build in the coming days, it could lead to very windy and wet weather on Sunday.
