Storm Ciara set to bring stormy conditions, squally winds and high seas in the coming days

Batten down the hatches.

Having already felt the wrath of Storm Brendan in 2020 so far, Ireland is set to experience inclement conditions once again as Storm Ciara approaches this weekend.

Met Éireann had already warned of “extremely disturbed” weather from Friday through to Sunday and is now forecasting stormy conditions, high seas and very strong and squally southwest winds on Sunday as Storm Ciara moves eastwards to the north of the country.

Named by the Met Office in the UK, Storm Ciara has already prompted status yellow wind warnings to be put in place for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland on Saturday and Sunday.

Met Éireann has advised the public to keep an eye on its website for forecasts and warnings over the coming days.

If the forecast for this weekend wasn’t bad enough, conditions show no signs of improving into next week, where there will continue to be strong winds, spells of heavy rain and some wintry showers and it will be pretty cold to boot.

Best just avoid the outdoors if at all possible until Valentine's weekend.
