 Warning issued for Monday as hurricane to reach Ireland

Met Eireann has this afternoon (Thursday) issued a weather warning for Monday next, when the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia are expected to hit Ireland. 

This has the potential to be "a high-impact event in parts of the country," according to the metereological service. 

"There is a lot of uncertainty as to the exact evolution and movement of this weather system during the coming four days, but storm-force winds, outbreaks of heavy rain, and very high seas are threatened," it said.  

"Met Eireann will maintain a close watch on the evolution and issue further advisories and warnings as these are warranted."

A yellow weather warning is currently in place up until 6am on Tuesday next but this has the potential to change as a more detailed forecast becomes available over the next couple of days.
