We'll pbly have an orange rainfall warning before the day is out.
A further 2-3 inches forecast Tuesday coinciding with v high tides.
With ground still saturated flooding looks likely.

For those not in the know it's the same system that dumped feet of snow across the US

Before today is out?
That's not Met Eireanns style.

Mods should we rename this to the Jonas storm that's heading our way for Tuesday, you could add whatever warning is necessary as the storm approaches

No, because we have a different naming standard to the US, and I have doubts as to whether this storm will be named in Ireland at all. If it is it won't be Jonas.

Personally I'd put the warning as a level two but let's see the opinions of more experienced posters.

No she didn't, she said "A front associated with the Storm Jonas" that's currently affecting north-east USA'

I think met.ie have already hinted at the associated front with its outlook forecast. Id imagine if things stay the same overnight then they will have warnings in place tomorrow sometime.



Much of Monday night will be cold and dry with frost in places and lowest temperatures of 0 to 3 degrees. Rain will develop in the west overnight and spread to many areas by dawn.

Tuesday will be a very wet day with spells of heavy rain in all areas at times. the rain will continue through Tuesday night. There will be further spells of heavy rain on Wednesday. Large amounts of rain will fall over the two days with flooding likely in many areas. Highest daytime temperatures of 10 to 12 degrees with fresh to strong southerly winds on Tuesday and lighter winds on Wednesday.

Strong winds more widespread in latest runs, a lot of area possibly being covered by an orange warning for wind.

An idea of rainfall accumulations up untill early Weds. The East getting off lightly. Mountainous regions taking much of the rain from Orographic lift.

Mention of flooding no longer there
It now says higher ground will see most of the heavier rainfall
