A Met Eireann forecaster has warned that a ‘ferocious looking beast’ is approaching Ireland in the form of a powerful Atlantic storm.
The RTÉ News weather reporter said “The next system is here out in the Atlantic, as you can see from the chart there, quite a ferocious looking beast coming our way there in low pressure with associated strong winds and heavy rain.”
The storm is believed to be coming close to Ireland on Thursday and Friday, but the national forecast said that the exact track of the storm is not certain.
It says on Met Eireann’s website “Strong to gale force and blustery south to southeast winds developing overnight will become southwesterly early Friday morning.
“This could well lead to some disruption, with some damaging gusts in places, but especially in exposed Atlantic coastal areas.
Met Eireann has advised people to check their website for updates as the week progresses.
