It’s no time to head out without an umbrella, that’s for sure.
As parts of the country brace for flooding with Storm Helene set to drench Galway, Sligo, Leitrim and Mayo in up to 40mm of rain tonight, we can expect blustery conditions to continue in Cork too.
Met Eireann is forecasting continued warm, windy and wet weather across Munster.
‘It will be warm and humid with highs of 17 to 20 degrees, with southerly winds strengthening through the day, reaching gale force along southwest coasts.’ according to the latest report.
Widespread, heavy and persistent rain is expected tonight with lowest temperatures of 10 to 12 degrees. That means there’s a few muggy nights in store too.
Meanwhile tomorrow will remain blustery with highest temperatures of 17 to 19 degrees.
The national forecaster says it predicts ‘very disturbed weather’ through the rest of the week.
As it stands, the clouds should lift by Sunday, but further weather warnings may well be issued as Storm Helene progresses.
Basically; bring a brolly if you’re having your hair done.
