We are on course to see rainfall records for February being broken at some stations in Ireland. Rainfall amounts in the western half of Ireland are almost three times greater than those recorded in the east so far this month.
Another impressive storm out in the Atlantic with center pressure expected to drop to 947hPa. Thankfully for us it is heading North towards Iceland and then head Northeast towards the Norwegian Sea. This system has not been named! pic.twitter.com/PYXIuClp0w
Meanwhile, the Status Yellow snow/ice warning for the whole country continues until midnight tonight, while a Status Yellow wind warning continues for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry until 8pm tonight.
A lovely break in weather today with lots of pleasant winter sunshine. Make the most of it as the next round of wet and very windy weather is already lining up out in the Atlantic and will arrive tonight with an awful day ahead tomorrow. Turning much colder tomorrow evening too.
Met Éireann has released a “weather advisory” for Ireland tomorrow, from 4am until 4pm. To wit:
Tuesday will be a blustery day with strong winds and very gusty conditions associated with an active front moving eastwards across the country. Generally, winds will be below warning thresholds but damage to some structures and trees, already weakened from the effects of Storm Atiyah, is possible.
Rain and showers will be heavy at times as well, especially in Atlantic coastal counties.
