Met Éireann Have Announced New 'Storm Bronagh' And It'll Hit Ireland Today

They say storms are like buses, you can wait an age for them and then suddenly two will arrive at once - and that if you've been stuck in one for anything  more than 3 minutes, you'll emerge feeling harried, ruffled and damp. Well, with Storm Ali having only just passed from our shores, leaving a trail of destruction that seemed to take the nation somewhat by surprise, there is already the second storm of the season on the way - Storm Bronagh.

Met Éireann confirmed that a large area of disturbed weather, developing just off the south coast in the Atlantic, has officially been classified as a storm.

And it is set to hit Ireland today. The front of the storm is currently moving north through the country and will bring prolonged and heavy rain throughout the day and the possibility of severe gales for tomorrow. It is expected that the prolonged thundery downpours may cause some spot flooding through parts of the country, particularly in the Southern half.

While Ireland will be affected, particularly by rains from the storm, it will predominantly be throughout England and Wales that the worst of the storm is felt.


As well as this, they have announced the possibility of another storm-like depression developing over the weekend that will move over the country.

RIP the summer, gone but not forgotten.
