Dublin: The Meteorological Office (Met) has issued a pre-emptive warning in anticipation of the impending arrival of Storm Agnes, rapidly approaching the shores of Ireland. A yellow alert has been activated for all counties across the Irish island, effective this Wednesday. However, government sources have indicated that more severe warnings are likely to be issued in the hours ahead.
The forecast forewarns of heavy rain and storms propelled by low-pressure systems originating in the Atlantic, set to sweep over Ireland on Wednesday and Thursday. The precise characteristics of the anticipated wind and rainfall remain subject to uncertainty.
Meteorologists have issued gale warnings specific to the regions of Leinster and Munster, where winds are projected to intensify significantly, becoming both strong and gusty before shifting in a westerly direction.
As a consequence of the impending weather conditions, travel disruptions, potential power outages, and the risk of coastal flooding are plausible scenarios.
Rainfall warnings have been activated for eight counties, encompassing Carlow, Dublin, Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow, Cork, Kerry, and Waterford.
