“Some strong and damaging winds are likely,” they added. Meanwhile, Carlow Weather’s Alan O’Reilly echoed the views of the national forecaster by warning that “bad storm conditions” are on the way due to a low pressure system and that official warnings may be on the cards.

“This low system tonight and tomorrow morning is now looking very bad as the latest weather models show it bringing very strong wind gusts early Monday morning with very heavy rain,” O’Reilly wrote on social media. “Watch the forecast and expect warnings to be issued.”

“More than 30mm of rain and gusts of over 100km/h as this storm develops rapidly as it moves into Ireland. Weather models are struggling to cope but the latest high-resolution ensembles have increased the risk of damaging winds significantly!”
