Yellow Weather Alert As Risk Of Flooding On The Way

Think you’ve seen enough rain for one summer?

Well think again, for Met Eireann has issued a new weather warning and we’re in for such heavy rain that they’ve upgraded to a yellow rainfall alert for Leinster counties Dublin, Carlow, Kildare, Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow, Cork and Waterford.

It’s not all bad news though. The yellow weather alert is the lowest grade of alert and is intended to act as a warning to members of the public who may be at risk due to their location or activity. There are two further alerts that indicate greater risk but they aren’t warranted by the current forecast.

There could be some localised flooding but the fact that the rain will fall mainly overnight means it won’t cause too much disturbance.
Even so, it might just be a good excuse for a duvet day with a good DVD until the sun decides to return….
