Batten Down The Hatches! Ireland Issued With A Tornado Warning

Hold on to your hats!

We thought nothing about the Irish weather would surprise us anymore, we were wrong.

A European storm forecaster has issued Ireland with a level one tornado warning today.

The European Storm Forecast Experiment, also known as Estofex, says a level one warning is the lowest warning of the three, but there is a five per cent chance of a tornado hitting the country today, reports.

Met Eireann issued Ireland with a weather warning this morning, reporting that wind speeds were expected to reach over 110 kilometres an hour in some parts of the country.  

The warning is for Munster, Leinster, Connacht, Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan, with western coastal counties worst affected.

Whewww! It’s breezy!

We won’t be getting any day off from work/school/college however, the winds and showers are expected to ease by 11pm tonight.

Met Éireann meterologist Harm Luijkx also said a second band of wet and windy weather will cross the country tomorrow.
