WEATHER ALERT: Waterford battered by 100km/h gales overnight
Waterford was battered by heavy winds overnight and a weather warning that came into effect at 3am will remain in place until 11am this morning.
Waterford was one of seven counties issued with Status Yellow alerts from Met Éireann yesterday.
The national forecaster has warned people to expect falling temperatures, strong winds and heavy rain over the coming days.
After a stormy morning, the rest of today will be mostly dry, with just light rain or drizzle and top temperatures of 11C.
But it’s looking like a week of unsettled weather ahead, according to Met Éireann.
The national forecaster is predicting both unseasonably warm and quite cold weather, as well as very windy and wet conditions interspersed with sunny spells.
Tomorrow is set to be a wet one, albeit with unseasonably warm temperatures of up to 15C.
The heavy rain will begin to ease by Wednesday, but intermittent heavy showers will remain. It will be much cooler with temperatures falling back to single figures – around 8C or 9C.
But the wet weather won’t stay away for long and Thursday is also likely to be wet and cloudy, according to Met Éireann.
The wet weather should finally break on Friday, but it will bring much cooler conditions. There will be a bit of sun around, but it will be very cool with temperatures of between 4C or 5C.
