Flooding on Bridge Street in Swords

Met Eireann have issued an advisory for heavy thundery showers for the whole of Ireland for the next few days as an ominous change hits the country.

A cold front spread across Ireland yesterday bringing heavy and possibly thundery showers which lead to hazardous driving conditions and spot flooding.

The areas especially at risk are Leinster with thunderstorms becoming widespread again during Wednesday before a strange weekend.

The forecaster said: “Early indications suggest the weekend will be fresh and bright with a northwesterly air-flow dominating bringing a mix of sunny spells and scattered showers.

“Temperatures close to or slightly below the seasonal average.”
