Met Éireann has updated it’s weather forecast for Clare, as forecasters keep a close eye on Hurricane Nigel.

A status yellow rain warning for the county, as well as Limerick, Tipperay, Cork, Kerry, Connacht, Donegal and Cavan, now comes into effect at 5 o’clock this evening and will remain in place until 6 o’clock tomorrow morning.

The national forecaster is warning of spells of rain, which will be heavy and persistent at times, especially on hills and mountains.


Hurricane Nigel is tracking towards Ireland from the Atlantic, but will rapidly lose power as it approaches the country on Saturday and while it’s still too soon to say for definite if the ex-hurricane will pass over Ireland, models suggest there’s a chance it will continue to move north towards Iceland.
