Storm Hannah is on her way to visit us, lads, and we've got to be extra cautious tonight. A red weather warning has officially been issued by Met Éireann in Clare from 8pm tonight until 11pm.

A yellow wind alert has been sent out from 11pm for counties in the south east, north-west and the west of Ireland.

Gardaí are appealing to the public to be aware of the dangers posed by high winds those who are living near coastal, cliff and waterway areas are advised to be extra cautious.

Met Éireann have said that northwesterly winds will reach speeds of over 80 km/h with 'violent gusts' of 130 to 150 km/h for a period this evening. Jaysis.

Road users are cautioned to plan your journeys in advance, and be careful of stopping distances on wet roads.

It's going to be a breezy weekend, lads. Prepare to get your Rihanna out and werk some umbrellas.


Met Éireann has issued a status yellow weather warning today for five counties, with heavy rain expected to hit the east of the country until Wednesday morning.

The official warning is in place for Dublin, Kildare, Louth, Wicklow and Meath. Motorists have also been urged to take extra care on roads this morning as a result of the wet weather.

Forecaster Pat Clarke said: "The next 24 hours will be the coldest and the wettest."

Clarke continued; "Obviously drivers will have to be careful. There could be some water on the roads and there is the possibility of hail."

A wind-chill factor around coastal areas will contribute to the frosty feel of the weather, with temperatures expected to fall to five degrees.

"There is the possibility of downpours and there may be some thunder mixed in," Mr Clarke said. Dublin Fire Brigade have also issued a road warning:

Unusually, the current inclement conditions have predominantly hit the east coast, Met Éireann says.

The weekend is expected to be far less damp, on Thursday the temperature will rise to 8 degrees and fewer showers will occur.

In terms of traffic, AA Roadwatch has urged motorists to slow down as roads across the country are very slippery this morning:

"Roads are damp or wet in much of the country this morning following overnight rain. It's particularly wet in parts of the midlands and along the east coast."

"When driving on wet roads slow down and leave a safe distance between yourself and the vehicle in front."

West Munster is getting the best of the weather at the moment, but tonight will be cold with further rain and hail showers scattered nationwide.



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.



Look, it happens to all of us. You forget your phone is in your back pocket, and when you go to the loo you hear that awful clink-sound of your precious mobile dropping into water.


Most of us will try to save our beloved phones by throwing them in the hot press or leaving them in a bag of rice for a few hours. But, let's be honest, these tricks can be totally hit and miss when it comes to saving the phone's life.

However, Gazelle ran a few tests and found out that this hack is way more efficient.

*Drumroll please* The website says that kitty litter (we're not joking) is way better at drying out a drenched phone than anything else.

They also recommend to leave the phone in the cat litter for three days to get most out if it. Now, to the pet shop… We guess…
