If you were convinced your wheelie bin was about to make a detour across town via your bedroom window last night, you weren't alone.

As Storm Georgina raged around the country in the early hours, most of us hoped against hope the weather would pick up by today, but, apparently, it's not meant to be.

According to the good folk at Met Éireann, we're in for a combination of wind, rain, hail and thunder in the aftermath of Storm Georgina.

"Windy today with strong and very gusty southwest winds" ,reads their official website. "Sunny spells and scattered heavy showers some of hail especially in southwestern, western and northwestern counties with isolated thunderstorms." 

And the forecast for tonight isn't any better.

"There'll be further heavy rain or hail showers tonight, with a continuing risk of isolated thunderstorms, the showers merging at times to give longer spells of rain overnight."

"Still blustery and windy with strong and gusty south to southwest winds especially in coastal counties of the south and west. Lowest temperatures of 1 to 5 degrees Celsius with frost in places sheltered from the wind."

Wake us up when this blows over.



Prepare for yet more anarchic weather as Storm Georgina prepares to land in Ireland. 

A status Orange weather warning has been issued for the entire country.  

According to Met Éireann, we can expect strong winds, heavy rainfall and thunder. 

'Turning very windy tonight as storm Georgina tracks to the northwest of the country,' said the Irish metrological service.  

'Southwest winds will be strong to very strong and gusty, with gale force winds for a time overnight with strong gales along coasts.'

'Rain will become widespread and heavy for a time during the night with the risk of thunder and spot flooding but will turn more showery later.'

The warning is in place from midnight tonight and will not be lifted until tomorrow morning. 

There is also a spot flood warning in place.
