Weather Experts Warn Ireland To Be Hit By 'Post-Tropical Cyclone' This Weekend

Following the news that we are planned to get "abnormally hot" weather over the next couple of summers in Ireland, that has been doubled with the announcement we are set to be hit by Storm Ernesto.

Storm Ernesto will bring with it a 'Post-Tropical Cyclone' and we are expected to at least get the tail-end of the Subtropical Storm which has formed out in the Atlantic.

The storm is a newly named by the US National Hurricane centre and has already reached maximum sustained winds near 40 mph with the possibility of additional strengthening over the next few days.

It is centered around 695 miles southeast of Canada and it is feared that it could grow into a major hurricane by Saturday.

For the moment, Met Éireann are saying that Saturday will be quite warm and humid, but changeable and unsettled.

There is the possibility of rain and drizzle at times with it becoming more widespread on Saturday night.
