DONEGAL could escape the worst of horrible weather predicted for Wednesday – but we will still face high winds and heavy downpours.
Met Eireann issued a new weather warning at 11.20pm last night (Tuesday) predicting damaging winds and heavy rain.
It said south Munster and east Leinster would be worst affected.
“A combination of high winds, heavy rainfall, abnormally low pressure and high tides will cause dangerous conditions in south Munster and east Leinster during Wednesday 15th August,” said Met Eireann.
“Gale to strong gale force easterly winds, later veering southeasterly to southerly, will occur. Frequent spells of rain will result in accumulations of 30 to 50 mm generally, with higher totals possible in mountainous areas. The will be a high risk of coastal and river flooding,” it added.
The predicted rainfall sequence suggests the atrocious conditions will hit Donegal by the afternoon and evening and will be accompanied by high tides.
We should escape the worst of the conditions.
