Flooding Expected as Storm Doris is Set to Bash Ireland
A yellow weather warning has been issued as Storm Doris is set to hit our shores.
Met Eireann says that gale force winds of up to 100km will batter parts of Ireland today.
The warning, which is valid until 6am tomorrow morning, reads: “Southeasterly winds will reach mean speeds of 45 to 60km/h with gusts of 80 to 100km/h, strongest at the coasts.”
The national forecaster added: “It will be windy today with spells of rain and drizzle, heavy at times.
“A few sunny breaks as well. Strong southerly winds will veer southwest this evening, but they will continue strong and blustery. Highest temperatures of 10 to 12C.”
Make sure to wrap up warm as it’s set to get cold tonight with temperatures dropping to 2C.
Cork City Council has issued a tidal alert for this morning as flooding is expected in the county.
They said: “A tidal surge, southerly winds and a low-pressure area in combination with Spring Tide may give rise to tidal flooding tomorrow.”
“Prior to and after this tide at 09:04 am, there is a danger of tidal flooding in the City.”
Tomorrow will also be a very cold day with sleet and snow predicted – with mercury plummeting to -5C.
We’ll be having a cosy weekend in by the looks of things…….
