The remains of Storm Jonas, which has lashed the North East of America, are expected to hit Ireland on Tuesday.
Instead of dumping snow, forecasters are warning of torrential rain and heavy winds which could cause more flooding across the country.
Met Eireann’s current forecast warns that Tuesday will be a very wet day with spells of heavy rain in all areas at times. There will be further spells of heavy rain on Wednesday. Large amounts of rain will fall over the two days with flooding likely in many areas.
Met Eireann forecaster Joanna Donnelly said weather warnings may be issued as conditions deteriorate on Tuesday morning. She said “We’re looking at possibly having warnings issued for heavy rain and strong winds on Tuesday which will spread across the country. Tuesday’s heavy rain and strong winds are expected to continue into Wednesday.”
