An update on Atlantic Storms currently near Ireland, can be found on Met Eireann’s website.
A wave depression is expected to deepen, as it tracks close to the southeast coast of Ireland today. It will track up the east Irish Sea and into northern England later today and tonight. As a result the UK Met Office have named it Storm Bronagh.
Effects for Ireland
Heavy and possibly thundery rain will affect Ireland today and for a time tonight, with a rainfall warning in operation for parts of south and east Munster and South Leinster. See warnings page https://www.met.ie/warnings.
Gale warnings also in operation for sea areas.
Possible Storm this Weekend
The weather remains changeable and disturbed for the coming weekend and there is potential for another storm to form late Saturday into Sunday. The track of the depression is uncertain at this stage and both Met Éireann and the UK Met Office are monitoring developments. Further updates and relevant warnings will be issued as appropriate.
