It’s safe to say that we’re pretty sick of all the bad weather at this stage, but with the arrival of Storm Desmond Met Eireann have issued a code red rain warning and a code orange wind warning for South Western counties, from this evening all through Saturday and into Sunday morning.
It might be a little dangerous at times, so we’d all be better off getting out the tiddlywinks and avoiding it if possible.
Apparently we’ve just had the windiest November in 70 years, and the wettest in 6 years
Multiple weather warnings issued, including Status Red rain warning for some western areas. For further info see https://t.co/QtEBJHeCVa
