Update on a dull Saturday morning for the coming days with some awful weather and some potentially great weather!
Today will be cloudy with some light drizzle and mist this morning clearing and just risk of a light passing shower, breezy with Southerly winds increasing and around 13c.
Rain will arrive tonight and will be heavy at times.
Tomorrow will be a mainly wet and windy day, the rain will vary from light to heavy during the day with strong Southerly winds and not above 12c.
Monday then sees a storm track near Ireland with strong gusts and heavy rain, this far out the exact track and details aren’t 100% clear but Carlow could see gusts of up to 90kmh Monday afternoon and up to 20mm of rain.
Southern coastal counties could see risk of flooding with up to 60mm of rain and high seas.
Tuesday will see a slow improvement with showers, winds still strong but reducing and around 13c.
The good news is Wednesday and Thursday look much better with sunny spells and temps up above 15c, they could hit 20c in some areas Thursday!
It does look like turning less mild again though Friday, though that is too far out yet to call.
Expect weather warnings to be issued in coming 72 hours and if you live in a Southern Coastal County and in an area prone to flooding then be aware.
