After a relatively decent weekend on the weather front, the next few days are expected to be pretty miserable with rain, near gale force winds, and damp conditions expected.
Renowned weather expert Alan O’Reilly from Carlow Weather has said that stormy conditions are on the way due to an Atlantic low-pressure system.
“After going on its holidays, the Jet Stream is going to come roaring back towards us. Powering up some Atlantic low-pressure systems which could include a nasty storm Wednesday night. Some very high seas likely with storm Wednesday and Thursday. I hope you didnt put all the garden furniture back out yet Grimacing face
He adds: “Will be interesting to see if this storm Wednesday gets a name. Storm Evert is the next name on the list, Met Éireann along with UK Met Office could name it as it will likely impact Britain too. The last-named storm was Darcy and it was named by the Dutch Met Service.”
