When has a little bad weather ever stopped us? 😉

It will no longer be a hurricane when it arrives in the UK but it will still bring powerful winds and heavy rain Deputy chief meteorologist Tony Wardle said: ‘The remnants of ex-Hurricane Lorenzo will gradually pull away from the UK later on Friday, though it’ll remain unsettled with further spells of wet and windy weather as we head into the weekend.

The Irish Government’s emergency task force met on Tuesday to discuss contingency measures for the approaching storm. Mr Murphy said coastal areas are due to be worst affected as ‘very significant storm wave surges’ are expected which could be ‘quite ferocious’ and ‘very dangerous’.He said the storm could also bring high winds and potentially cause flooding in some areas.

Very strong winds are predicted which will make driving conditions hazardous, especially for the more vulnerable road users such as cyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists and high-sided vehicles.Road users have been warned to pay particular attention to the risk posed by fallen trees and flying debris as trees are in full leaf.
