Renewed rain and strong winds for west on Monday 7th (onset tonight)

Heads up, after a break today with an interval of dry weather and relatively light winds, another storm approaches from the southwest tonight and spreads rain back across western counties with potential for 20-30 mm. Normally this would be a level one rainfall event but with the ongoing widespread flooding and high water tables, whatever improvement today might bring (and in such a short time, not that much) will be held back by this renewed rainfall. Eastern regions will see more like 10-20 mm.

Wind this time will come from the south (or SSE) and south Kerry, west Cork coastal regions may see the strongest gusts to about 120 km/hr. It will become generally windy elsewhere too, more like a level one alert for many other areas, but certainly level two in some parts of west Munster.

I thought we should probably have just the one thread for this storm so hopefully the Met-E warning levels will be equal for rain and wind to avoid problems. As I say, it's partly the context of recent events that makes this a level two event, if it came in isolation it might be more of a level one.

Have away ... while I started this, I may not be around for quite a few hours and I hope some of the regulars will put a little meat on the bone provided here.

It does look windy for a period on Monday, up to around Force 9 on southwest and west coasts.



Rainfall amounts don't appear to be significant, up to 20-30mm in the west/southwest over the next 48 hours. Though there will be more rain on the way during the week

It looks like that we will have Storm Eva this week. If it is not tomorrow it would be likely on Wednesday. Hopefully it will be a long while before Frank will be around.

Would be surprised if it was tomorrow. Winds look to be below the Orange warning level at all times and the rainfall is probably not enough for a Yellow warning level.

Wednesday has the potential to be more interesting but it's uncertain at this stage.

HIRLAM with a cheeky little low on Tuesday, could bring a brief burst of strong winds to a small area.



Tiny core of 90 km/h mean winds on the Mayo coast.

Yellow warning issued, winds to be nothing like the wind we have bad over the past few weeks, certainly nothing like Barney.
