More fears over local flooding, but temperatures to remain high
We’re in for even more rain, but at least the sharp cold of winter won’t be setting in just yet.
Met Eireann has said that it expects the south and south-west coasts to be the worst affected as heavy downpours will continue until at least tomorrow night.
Forecaster Deirdre Lowe has said that temperatures are higher than normal at the moment and when the rain decides to let up we will be in for good weather with temperatures set for the high teens.
“It will be humid with mist and fog, and mild. It will clear away on Thursday evening and it will be brighter from Friday with sunny showers,” she told The Independent.
“Temperatures will be pretty good and into the high teens. Generally speaking you're looking at temperatures of 17C, and they won't fall that much at night. From Friday, they look between 15-17C which should remain the same until Sunday.”
The flash flooding is in contrast to last month where rainfall was below average, with the north and north midlands the driest parts of the country, with monthly rainfall values at their lowest in some stations for the past 11 years.
Seems like October is already making up for that.
