The wind/rain today is the formation of a storm that is moving away from us and will do some damage later today in Wales and England. There is another storm expected to form over us on Sunday, whether it forms early enough to do some wind damage is still not set in stone. It’s a bit unusual to have these storms form over Ireland, they usually happen out in the Atlantic and get dragged to us on the jet stream.
Anyway, wet and windy all weekend but there will be calmer and much drier conditions next week as a high pressure cell settles over us. Possibly from Monday onwards and for the foreseeable future.
