It’s time to batten down the hatches – Ireland is set to be battered by wind, rain and extreme flooding.
While we’re currently enjoying a moderate autumn, longterm forecasters are warning that a major storm is brewing and the pattern of weather will suddenly plummet towards the end of October.
While the weather may be dry and mild at the moment, longterm forecasters warn that a stormy weather pattern will set in during the second half of October.
Flooding issues are again forecasted to hit the country during the winter months, with weather authorities warning that “majorly above normal rainfall” is exepected.
Senior Meteorologist Alan Reppert warned: “Above-normal rainfall across Ireland and the U.K. will result in another winter of severe flooding problems starting by the end of October.” It could lead to heavy snow.
