There’s an unsettled week ahead.
And after a weekend where many an outdoor autumn event was canceled due to the bad weather, Met Éireann says we could be facing yet more stormy conditions in Cork as we ride out the final week of September.
“On Wednesday, a deep Atlantic depression will track close to or over Ireland.” said a forecaster, as a Yellow Wind warning was issued.
“Exact details of the forecast are still uncertain. But there is the potential for it to be a very windy or stormy day with damaging winds, heavy rain and flooding.
“Please stay up to date with forecasts and warnings regarding this over the next couple of days. Highest temperatures of 14 to 17 degrees.”
The stormy conditions and rain will clear on Wednesday night, winds will ease and it will become mainly dry with lowest temperatures of 10 to 13 degrees.

Thursday will start off mainly dry. However, rain will spread eastwards across the country through the afternoon and evening and will clear on Thursday night with scattered showers following.
“Likely dry for most at first before rain tracks eastwards across the country through the morning and early afternoon, followed by showers, with some heavy or thundery falls possible.” said the forecaster.
Current indications suggest Friday and Saturday will be mild with a fair amount of dry weather, lighter winds, and a few showers in the west and north. However, spells of rain look likely for Sunday.
