More Rain on the Way? Met Éireann Issue National Weather Warnings for Ireland

Rain, rain, go away...

Looks like the bad spell of weather is set to stay for a while yet.

Met Éireann have issued a “Status Orange” and “Yellow” national weather warnings for Ireland which is expected to at least be valid up until Friday.

The “Status Orange” warning reads:

Rainfall Warning for Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow, Cork, Tipperary and Waterford

Spells of heavy and thundery rain with localised flooding, totals of around 40 to 70 mm expected.

While “Yellow” states:

Rainfall Warning for Dublin, Kildare, Laois, Louth, Offaly, Westmeath and Meath

Spells of heavy and thundery rain with totals of around 25 to 40 mm expected.

Fingers crossed the rain will decide to move on soon! Oh well, better keep the rain gear handy.
