Weather warnings expected ahead of heavy rain this week

Weather warnings will be issued tomorrow by Met Éireann ahead of wet and stormy conditions expected in the coming week.

Met Éireann issued a weather advisory today for Galway and the rest of the country which lasts from Monday until Thursday.

Conditions are set to become unsettled by the end of the weekend, and a spell of very wet and sometimes windy weather is forecast on Monday and Tuesday.

There will be persistent and locally heavy rainfall, and with high soil saturation levels, there is a risk of river and surface flooding.

There is also a higher risk of coastal flooding due to unusually high tides combined with strong winds.
