With soon to be named storm Brian on the way a status yellow weather warning has now been issued for the South and East.

With soon to be named Storm Brian on the way Met Eireann have now stepped up their warnings for the south of the country with the risk of spot flooding increased due to as much as 50mm of rain due for the south and east.

A status yellow rainfall warning has been issued for Munster, Dublin, Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow and Meath and will be in place for all of today.

Met Eireann said:

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 yellow 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.

Please farm safely in storm conditions and prepare your farms ahead of any potential spot flooding in your area.
