Brace yourself for more rain, hail and storm conditions: Met Éireann

STORM conditions are set to batter Kilkenny and parts of the rest of the country over the coming days.

Met Éireann has issued a Status Yellow wind warning for the entire west coast from 10pm tomorrow until 9am Friday. Wind speeds are expected to reach between 55 to 65km/h with gusts of 90 to 110km/h.

Kilkenny is likely to be lashed with more heavy showers. Leinster and Ulster will experience some of the worst rainfall expected, with temperatures plummeting to as low as -2 degrees. Motorists are being urged to take care as frost and ice are expected to develop.

The national forecaster says “stormy conditions” are in store for later in the week with hail and thunder also on the cards.

Rain will develop in the south tonight and continue northwards over the country, turning heavy at times with a risk of spot flooding in the south.

Sections of the River Nore, in Thomastown and Inistioge, are close to overflowing its banks.

Scattered, blustery showers are in store for Friday with a risk of hail and thunder.

Meanwhile, this weekend also looks set to be miserable with more rain and showers moving in from the Atlantic on Saturday afternoon.

For those heading out on Saturday night, Met Éireann is warning that a windy night is in store.

However, Sunday will see a slight improvement with showers becoming increasingly isolated and northwesterly winds gradually moderating.
