Current Forecast: Friday, 20 October 2017 19:51
Persistent and heavy falls of rain over eastern parts of the country, with the risk of thundery downpours leading to further localized flooding. Clearer conditions with scattered heavy showers in western areas will gradually spread countrywide later this evening. South to southeast winds will continue to strengthen as Storm Brian approaches the west coast this evening.
Tonight south to southeasterly winds will further strengthen and veer southwesterly as the centre of the storm depression tracks across the country with a yellow wind warning in place countrywide, but an orange level warning continues in operation for southern and western coastal counties as winds are expected to reach storm force there. Rain will continue to turn more showery from the southwest, but the showers look likely to merge into longer spells of rain in the west by dawn. Lowest temperatures will stay around 9 to 12 degrees.
