Met Eireann says that the effects of Storm Dennis will continue today, so brace yourselves

Okay, we're spending our Sunday indoors...

Storm Dennis is still in full swing, with no signs of slowing just yet.

The nationwide weather warnings are in tact until this evening, and the weather today is set to be pretty bad.

According to Met Eireann, the effects of Storm Dennis will continue today.

It will be very windy everywhere with strong and very gusty southwest winds. It will be stormy at times near west and north coasts with gales and severe or damaging gusts and a risk of coastal flooding.

However, sunshine and widespread heavy squally showers with a risk of hail and thunder.

Gross.

As for this evening?

The weather will continue to be very windy or stormy early tonight, especially in the west and north, with strong to gale force and very gusty southwest winds.

Later in the night winds will ease somewhat, but will continue fresh to strong and gusty. Heavy showers of rain and hail will continue with a risk of thunder.

STORM DENNIS

Storm Dennis will pass by tomorrow morning apparently, but that doesn't mean gorge weather for the week ahead I'm afraid.

Monday will be a cold, bright, blustery day with sunny spells and widespread heavy showers with a risk of hail and thunder. Some of the showers turning wintry over high ground. Highest temperatures of 5 to 8 degrees with mostly fresh, gusty westerly winds, strong on coasts.

Monday night will be cold with clear spells and scattered wintry showers, these most frequent over the western half of the country. Lowest temperatures of 0 to 4 degrees with moderate to fresh southwest winds.

Tuesday will continue cold, bright and breezy with sunshine and scattered wintry showers. Highest temperatures of 5 to 9 degrees with fresh, gusty westerly winds. Tuesday night will be cold with frost in places. Rain will develop in the west overnight. Lowest temperatures of 0 to 4 degrees.

On Wednesday, rain will spread eastwards across the country and will continue through the day and on Wednesday night, eventually clearing overnight with showers following. A milder day with highest temperatures of 8 to 10 degrees and fresh southerly winds.
