Well no, probably not. It’s more likely to be a tropical storm, according to Met Éireann. We’re set for a rough start to next week though.
IRELAND IS HEADING for a stormy start to next week, although it may be slightly less than the hurricane that has been mooted.
Currently, Hurricane Ophelia is gathering pace over the Atlantic, and is expected to make landfall on this side of the ocean on Monday.
However, it may not be as bad as all that – Met Éireann says it’ll have downgraded itself to a mere tropical storm by that time. So it’s bad, but it could be worse.
“Current indications suggest a stormy day for Monday is possible,” says Met.ie.
So that’s good. It’s still set to be a rainy weekend, starting from tonight, with things remaining “dull and damp” throughout Friday and for most of Saturday and Sunday, with light-to-moderate winds from the south.
For the moment however, it’s very nice outside altogether, with Dublin currently soaking up some very welcome sunshine.
