Pic: The storm today will be bad, but look at what is forecast for next week

Your hatches should remain battened down until at least Wednesday. Sigh...

As we know, another storm is scheduled to hit the Irish coast later today. It will be bad, but not quite as fierce as the ones we have seen over the the last six weeks ago. That said, we can expect yet more coastal flooding due to the high wind and waves.

This image shows what will arrive in the next few hours.

However, a quick look at our friends at Met Eireann shows that a much more destructive storm will land on the country on Monday night/Tuesday morning. The wind map below illustrates that perfectly.

Storm Feb 11

The forecasters say that 'very stormy conditions' will arrive early on Tuesday, followed by  'very severe and damaging winds' later that day. This, of course, will be accompanied by 'heavy rain' too.
