Radar indicates powerful squall line developing through Meath heading south and likely to hit parts of Kildare and Dublin within the hour, alert lasts to 6 pm and may be updated further south. Potential for wind gusts to 70 mph and large hail, thunder, torrential downpours, and local (F0-1) tornado development. Watch for updates. Would appreciate any observations as squall line passes.
