Storm Brendan has passed but there's still a risk of strong winds, hail and thunder

It's not looking great.

Storm Brendan pretty much battered the country yesterday, however even though the weather warnings have been lifted and the storm has seemingly passed, it will still be a very rough and breezy day.


The weather forecaster said that there may even be a risk of hail or thunder as the evening goes on.

Met Éireann said: "Cold today, with scattered showers at first. More persistent rain will extend from the southwest during the morning and early afternoon, with some sleet and hill snow.

"There will be some heavy and possibly thundery falls, mainly in parts of Munster and Leinster, but amounts will be smaller in the west and northwest. Clearer conditions, with scattered showers, will extend from the west during the afternoon and early evening.

"Maximum temperatures 3 to 6 Celsius generally, but milder in the southeast. Winds becoming mostly light to moderate southerly or variable for a time, later mostly moderate west to southwest. However, but it will become very windy on the southeast coast for a time in the afternoon, with strong and gusty southwesterly winds."

Meanwhile, tonight will be very much the same, with winds and frost.


"Tonight will be cold and breezy, with clear spells and scattered showers, most of them in the western half of the country, with a risk of hail and thunder, mainly on Atlantic coasts. Minimum temperatures 1 to 3 Celsius, with a risk of a slight frost in sheltered places. Winds mostly moderate to fresh southwesterly, strong on Atlantic coasts."

Be careful out there!
