Met Éireann have warned today, October 9th, of the possibility of weather conditions worsening and a storm hitting the country by Thursday.

Thursday is expected to be a windy and gusty day overall, with widespread rain for a time during the day. The weather is forecast to take a turn for the worse later on Thursday night, October 11th, with the potential of a named storm coming close to the country.

“There is the potential for a named storm to come close to Ireland later Thursday night and early Friday morning, as a deep area of low pressure is set to track northwards, to the west of Ireland.” Met Éireann warned.

They say the exact track of the storm is unknown as of yet, though what they do know is that Thursday night, although starting dry, will become “extremely windy or stormy”. Met Éireann warn of strong to gale force gusts developing overnight on Thursday and into Friday morning. They warn that this weather could “lead to some disruption”.

“This could well lead to some disruption, with some damaging gusts in places, but especially in exposed Atlantic coastal areas.” They warn.

This will be proceeded by spells of heavy rain, high seas and tides, with a risk of coastal flooding. This unsettled weather should clear by Friday afternoon/evening.
