Orange you sick of all these weather warnings? Well here’s another one

There’s no let-up in sight for the foreseeable future, it seems.

As you’ve probably guessed by the cringe-worthy headline, Met Eireann have seen fit to issue a status orange flood warning for the entire country, warning that another Atlantic storm over Ireland is likely to produce heavy precipitation and gales in places.

The Rainfall radar for today doesn’t look particularly promising either, so you’re better off staying indoors but if you do venture outside make sure to wear the waterproofs or at least bring a sturdy brolly.

As if the orange warning wasn’t bad enough, Met Eireann have also issued a Yellow wind warning for Munster and Leinster, a Yellow rainfall warning for Munster, Leinster, Connacht, Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan and a yellow warning of snow and ice in Connacht, Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Kildare, Longford, Westmeath and Meath.

As signalled yesterday, the weekend’s not much better with further rain showers, strong winds and cold temperatures expected, although it is expected to become a little milder early next week.

If those weather warnings don’t help set the mood for Valentine’s Day we don’t know what will…
