Just what we need.
Just after a status yellow rainfall warning finishes, it looks like the weather isn't go ing to settle down anytime soon, with a 'winter storm' on the way.
Met Ãireann had already forecast blustery and wintry showers for next week, starting from Monday evening, particularly affecting the west and north of the country:
"Monday will be a bright day with sunshine and blustery showers, most frequent across the north and west of the country. It will turn colder as the day goes on with mid-afternoon temperatures ranging from 4 degrees in the north to 8 degrees in the south. In the evening the showers will start to turn wintry."
The outlook for the week also confirms more wintry showers:
"Polar maritime airflow becomes established over the country and persists through much of the week. Cold with frequent wintry showers, gales and the risk of coastal flooding on Atlantic coasts due to high seas."
But the final worrying line applies from W ednesday onwards when they said a 'winter storm' will pass over the country.
"Temperatures rising during the evening as heavy rain and strong winds develop overnight with the passage of a winter storm across Ireland."
