The following Weather Advisory has been issued by Met Eireann at 14:00 hours Thursday, 12-Oct-2017.
A combination of a vigorous Atlantic weather system and the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia will pass close to Ireland on Monday, and has the potential to be a high-impact event in parts of the country.
There is a lot of uncertainty as to the exact evolution and movement of this weather system during the coming four days, but storm-force winds, outbreaks of heavy rain, and very high seas are threatened.
Met Éireann will maintain a close watch on the evolution and issue further advisories and warnings as these are warranted.
Valid from 14:00 hours Thu, 12-Oct-2017
Valid until 06:00 hours Tue, 17-Oct-2017 For Ireland Weather Advisory
