Met Éireann issue 'Storm Ernesto' warning for Offaly

Experts at the Met Office are warning that the coming days could be marred by stormy weather conditions thanks to Storm Ernesto, which formed in the North Atlantic near the east coast of America on Tuesday.

Subtropical Storm Ernesto continues to track off to the northeast across the open waters of the north-central Atlantic.

Storm Ernesto hit Newfoundland, Canada late on Wednesday according to US National Hurricane Centre, and is now making its way across the Atlantic.

Northwest England, Scotland, North Wales, and Northern Ireland will feel its blustery effects in the early hours of Sunday.

According to Met Eireann, it will be mild and humid tonight, with temperatures unlikely to fall below 13 to 15 degrees Celsius. This new weather system comes just after Hurricane Hector threatened to strike Hawaii, but instead passed south last week with minimal impact.
