Met Éireann have issued a statement in relation to a period of unsettled weather which is set to affect Ireland next week. The forecasters say that a highly mobile Atlantic regime looks set to dominate our weather pattern through this weekend and the coming week.
This will bring a sustained period of unsettled, often very windy and at times wintry weather with showers of hail, sleet and snow.
A very strong Jet Stream will help to push some vigorous and potentially disruptive Atlantic weather systems over Ireland during the period.
Strong and blustery winds look likely to feature from Saturday (9th March) through to at least Wednesday (13th) with frequent gales at sea. Sea conditions will be very rough and there will be exceptionally high seas and swell in Atlantic coastal regions at times.
There is certainly potential for warnings to be issued over the coming days, so please do stay up to date with the Met Éireann forecast.
