Is Ireland going to be hit by a storm next week? The latest as warning issued

By Sophie Collins

Ireland’s summer weather looks like it’s coming to a temporary halt next week as a low-pressure system passes us by.

Although there are no definitive forecasts showing the effects of this mid-Atlantic storm, Irish forecasters say they cannot rule out resulting weather warnings.

There is ‘a lot of uncertainty' at the moment, but weather charts show the storm tracking incredibly close to the west coast.

Weather Alerts Ireland warns: “A storm is forecast to come close to Ireland early next week.

“Still a lot of uncertainty on this, at the moment it is forecast to stay offshore but in this morning's ECMWF model it looks as though it has moved closer to Ireland.

“Still plenty of time for all of this to change!”

Addressing the stormy conditions approaching us next week, Met Eireann’s forecasters say a southerly airflow could bring showers moving northwards, with the potential for thundery downpours.

“With low pressure becoming established in the mid-Atlantic and high pressure over the continent, a southerly airflow will develop over Ireland during Week 1,” the monthly predictions state.

“This airflow will introduce very mild or warm air for a time over Ireland, becoming humid too. Showers or longer spells of rain will track northwards over Ireland in the flow, with the potential for locally heavy or thundery rainfall.

“There is still a lot of uncertainty around the rainfall details, but warnings could not be ruled out at this stage.

“There is a signal for wetter than normal conditions for southern coastal areas, with the rest of the country signalled to be drier than normal.

“Temperatures will trend two degrees above the norm, possibly up to 3 degrees milder than average.”
