As of 8pm tonight, a Status Yellow weather warning will be put in place for the entire country.

Forecasters have warned the public that strong winds and persistent rain is to be expected over the next 24 hours, with the warning to remain in place until 6am tomorrow.

Taking to Twitter, the national forecasters confirmed: "Southwest winds are expected to reach mean speeds of between 55 and 65 km/hr, gusting to 110 km/hr at times on Tuesday night."

"Outbreaks of rain will reach the west this evening and will spread across the country overnight. The rain will be heaviest and most persistent in the west and northwest but rather patchy elsewhere," reads the official website.

It is understood that winds will increase fresh to strong in a south or southwest in direction while tomorrow will see blustery weather with patchy rain.

This is set to become heavy and more persistent in the north and northwest of the country.

If anyone needs us, we'll be by the fire.



Temperatures across the country a set to plummet below freezing tonight, with lows of -6C expected in some parts.

Met Éireann have issued a Status Orange Low Temperature warning for Munster, Connacht, Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan, as well as inland areas of Leinster.

The warning is in place from 9pm tonight to 10am tomorrow morning.

Severe air and ground frosts are expected to hit the entire country and motorists are being advised to exercise extreme caution while travelling and to leave plenty of extra time for journeys.

As reported by brekingnews.ie, meteorologist Liz Gavin explained: 

"Tonight it's actually going to turn very cold, we are going to see temperatures ranging from -1C on the east and south coast to -5C or -6C well inland.

"So it'll really be inland areas of Leinster, Connacht, Munster and Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan that will see the lowest temperatures tonight."



This week's weather has been pretty damn rough, and it sounds like today is going to be an amalgamation of everything the last few days has had to offer.

An update issued on Twitter by Met Éireann has warned the public that a mixture of hail, thunder, sleet and snow is imminent.

"Frequent blustery showers, today, some of them heavy and prolonged, with a risk of hail and thunder," read the tweet this morning.

"Showers of sleet and snow also, especially later this afternoon. Strong and gusty westerly winds, gale along west and southwest coasts."

The Met Éireann website points to a stormy night ahead, saying: "Windy tonight, with strong and gusty westerly winds, and gales or strong gales at sea, producing large waves along Atlantic coast."

"Scattered showers will continue, interspersed with clear intervals. Some of the showers will be wintry, especially over high ground, with an ongoing risk of thunder."

With minimum temperatures of 0 to plus 4 degrees Celsius, with a risk of frost in sheltered spots, it's definitely a night for the open fire.




If you're still attempting to warm up after your morning commute, you're not alone. And it doesn't sound like this morning's weather is going to get any milder any time soon.

Met Éireann have issued a Status Yellow weather warning, forecasting snow, wind and ice for most parts of the country over the next 24 hours.

"The showers will turn increasingly wintry with falls of hail and snow – especially in the north, and a few will push further south this evening. Northwest winds will be strong and gust," reads the official website.

"Wintry showers will be widespread overnight and frequent in the north with accumulations of snow over inland parts of Ulster and other northern areas."

"Mainly dry across the south and southwest. Northwest winds will stay strong and gusty. A widespread sharp ground frost will form during clear spells with icy patches forming widely."

And as for tomorrow? Met Éireann warn it will be 'very cold again' on Friday,  with a few sunny spells, but with occasional wintry showers of hail, sleet and snow .

There will be further accumulations of snow over northern counties and over high ground elsewhere.

Ladies, time to rebuild the duvet fort.



Ladies, the latest news out of the Met Éireann headquarters is not good.

According to the country's forecasters, seven counties around Ireland will be subject to a particularly wet weekend ahead.

Issuing two yellow weather warnings to the public, Met Éireann wrote: "RAINFALL WARNING ISSUED. Status Yellow warning issued for Offaly, Limerick & Tipperary for 30 to 40mm from Fri 6pm to Sat 6pm."

"Also Status Yellow warning issued for Galway, Mayo, Clare & Kerry for 40 to 50mm from Fri 6pm to Sat 6pm," they added.

Don't say they didn't warn you…



As the last few fireworks light up the sky and the Christmas sections in shops getting bigger by the day, it's safe to say that winter 2017 is officially here.

And with that, there is a definite chill in the air as temperatures look set to plummet over the weekend.

Tonight will see temperatures drop to lows of one to five degrees, with gusty northwest winds set for the Atlantic coasts.

Tomorrow will be a cool but bright day with sunny spells as well as the odd shower over the northern half of the country. Highs of seven to 11 degrees.

Sunday night will see temperatures drop back to between one and five degrees once again, with some grass frost expected for the eastern half of the country.

It's a similar story for the rest of the week, with a mixture of sunny spells and scattered showers.

Wrap up warm, ladies. It looks like we're in for a cold few months.



Between the recent departure of storm Ophelia and the imminent arrival of Storm Brian, the nation is certainly due a reprieve.

But, according to the good folk at Met Éireann, it's not meant to be.

Forecasters have confirmed that a number of counties around the country are set to experience heavy, thundery rain both today and tomorrow.

"Rain, in the south this morning, will become widespread this afternoon with hill and coastal fog also," reads an update on their website.

"Widespread mist, fog and drizzle tonight will give way to a spell of heavy and possibly thundery rain. The rain is expected to arrive on the west coast before midnight and slowly cross the country, arriving in the east on Thursday morning."

The worst effected areas include Munster, Dublin, Carlow, Kilkenny, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow and Meath, with rain expected to reach between 30 and 50mm.

It's official – Friday September 22 marks the first day of Autumn and with all hopes of an Indian summer pretty much gone out the window, it's time to settle in for the season ahead.

While today is expected to be mostly dry with top temperatures of 18 degrees, the same can not be said for the rest of the week.

Tomorrow will be cloudy and misty with widespread rain and drizzle affecting most areas. Slightly cooler with top temperatures of 14 to 17 degrees.

The outlook remains unsettled for the rest of the week scattered showers and short sunny spells.

Early predictions suggest the weekend will be wet and windy, though some sunny spells are expected on Sunday.

Bye-bye summer, see you next year. 



Met Éireann have issued two separate weather warnings as heavy showers and strong winds are set expected to batter the country's west coast today.

A status yellow rainfall warning is in place for counties Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo and Sligo, while a status yellow wind warning is also in place for these counties, as well as Clare, Cork and Kerry.

The warnings will remain in place until tomorrow morning and weather chiefs have said that accumulations of 30 to 50 mm are expected.

A developing low pressure system in the Atlantic will result in wind speeds of up to 65km/h are expected, with gusts of up to 110km/h.

The outlook is not much better for other parts of the country, with scattered showers due to become more persistent by evening time as well as strong southwesterly winds. Top temperatures of 16 to 17 degrees.

Tomorrow will be cool and blustery, though it's thought most showers will become isolated by evening. Top temperatures of 14 to 16 degrees.

Well, that's summer well and truly over anyway. Sigh.



Ladies. if you were confident that the kids' return to school would signal the arrival of our annual Indian Summer, we have some bad news for you.

According to the good folk at Met Éireann, we are in for one seriously wet weekend, with forecasters issuing a Status Yellow weather warning.

The Met Éireann forecast has confirmed rainfall for 14 counties this weekend, including Dublin, Carlow, Kilkenny, Louth, Wexford, Wicklow, Meath, Galway, Mayo, Clare, Cork, Kerry, Tipperary and Waterford.

The warning went into effect this morning at 10am and will continue until Sunday at 06.00.

Thankfully for Electric Picnic revellers, Co Laois didn't make its way onto the aforementioned list, but that doesn't mean you can forego wellies in favour of sunglasses, ladies.

It is Ireland, after all.



At 9am this morning, Met Éireann issued a Status Orange Thunder Warning to the good people of Ireland ahead of some problematic weather conditions.

And what is a Status Orange Thunder Warning, pray tell?

Well, it means that the weather has the 'capacity to impact significantly on people', with the public set to experience 'widespread thundery activity this afternoon and evening'.

The forecaster's official website explains that "widespread heavy thundery downpours will develop by afternoon, with the risk localised spot flooding" today.

Tonight, we can expect heavy rain with thundery bursts, however these conditions will clear before midnight and give way to cooler, clearer weather.

Anyone else wondering why summer never made an appearance this year?!




Ladies, if you're heading to Longitude this weekend, it's definitely worth your while heeding the advice of the good folk over at Met Éireann.

According to reports, forecasters have told music fans to expect a weekend of sun and high temperatures which means reapplying your sunscreen is more important than reapplying your glitter over the next two days.

A spokesperson for Met Éireann spoke to The Sun and confirmed that the sun is set to shine over Marlay Park this weekend.

"Gig goers should definitely bring sun tan lotion as we believe the sun burn index will be high. Tomorrow will be muggy and close at Longitude. It will be fairly fine into the evening."

"Sunday will be a warm, dry sunny day, maybe not as warm but a bright, fresh day all the same," they added.

According to their official website, Saturday will be "warm, humid and blustery with top temperatures of 17 to 20 degrees in northern and western areas and 21 to 24 degrees elsewhere."

So, to be clear, your ticket and your suncreen are the biggest priorities if you're Longitude-bound, ladies.
