One minute we’re thinking about heading to the beach, the next we’re gearing up for potential floods…
This is the Irish weather in a nutshell. Throughout the first weeks of the Covid-19 pandemic, we were treated to some beautiful sunshine.
However, lately, the unpredictability of the Irish weather has really been highlighted. From sunny days, thunder and lightening in the night, flash floods in shops, to a potential tornado in Enniscorhthy, we’ve had it all recently.
The national weather forecaster, Met Eireann, has now placed a Yellow Weather Warning over Wexford.
As per the weather warning, heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms will occur in places during the period. While some areas will miss the showers where they do occur there will be some torrential downpours, localised flooding and hazardous driving conditions.
A more prolonged and widespread period of heavy rain will occur later on Thursday.
The weather warning, which was issued on Wednesday, is valid from Wednesday 12 noon to Friday 19 June.
Here’s hoping Wexford won’t be too badly affected.
